Our world is in constant danger from natural and man-made disaster. The risk of flood, famine, hurricanes, earthquakes and disease is ever present. We are already seeing the impact of climate change in rising sea levels and extreme weather events. Aid budgets are stretched and volunteers under pressure. The global humanitarian response community are in desperate need of innovation, and we’re relying on you to make that happen.
CrisisHack 2018 would like you to prototype and test a solution to one of the following case studies, which have been validated by real humanitarian organisations and needs: UK Floods, and the Urban Sanitation Crisis. Crowning a winner from each strand, renowned judges will also explore how winning entries can be developed into sustainable business ideas with potential funding and resource.
Case studies and user need information can be found in our CrisisHack brochure here.
Now it is over to you to bring your skills, ideas and passion to the forefront and use technology and tools to build a solution that could make a real difference to people in the UK and all over the world. Register by 24 April to avoid disappointment!
Full event details and the registration link can be found on our Splashthat webpage.
