European societies are confronted by multiple crises.
The manifestations of crises such as social inequalities, climate change, the COVID-19 pandemic, geo-political fragmentation or the continuing loss of nature may vary, but they are connected at the root: unsustainable development patterns.
Join us for the next in our series of collaborative events which focuses on the interlocking environmental crises of the Earth. Led by the Stockholm School of Economics and London School of Economics, this event will present participants with the opportunity to engage with environmental crises of wildfires and drought in Europe.
Cutting edge data sets and techniques will be shared with participants to provide them with the skills and knowledge to examine the situation through the lens of societal transitions.
Recognising the need for integrated solutions based on integrated diagnoses, participants will select from two tasks as they form teams to produce outputs. These tasks will be to either produce an App Concept Design or an Infographic. These will then be subject to the review of an expert judging panel.
The event will bring together faculty, students, and other interested parties from CIVICA Research partner institutions and beyond to tackle these challenges that cross physical and disciplinary boundaries and require innovative solutions. Exclusive data sets will be shared with participants in advance to allow them to work with this ahead of the event.
We welcome registrations of teams or individuals. If you register as an individual, you will be allocated to a team on the first day of the Hackathon.
