LIVING TOMORROW HACKATHON

3 - 4 March 2020

Registrations are closed



What's the Hackathon about?


Hacking is change and everyone is a hacker of his own life and environment. And a Hackathon is perceiving change together. 

At Living Tomorrow Innovation Campus, we are convinced that together with you we can build a solution-oriented, positive future, adapted to the changing world.  We can lead by example, showing our visitors how to deal with the larger-than-life challenges our generation is facing: Climate Change, Resource Scarcity and Energy Transition.  

There are plenty of solutions out there – for example, the critically and scientifically acclaimed research project Drawdown offers an exhaustive list of climate change adaptation solutions. Ranging from food waste reduction to plant-rich diet and renewable energy solutions, there are actions we can take on a personal, company, or community levels.  

But how can we share these many solutions through our Living Tomorrow Innovation Campus? How can we inspire our visitors to take an active part in shaping this more resilient future?

Join the Living Tomorrow community and let’s explore new ideas together! Let’s tap into the power of our combined knowledge and creativity, and work on future-proof systemic solutions. Let’s show the world how it could be done!   

Who can participate?
Anyone who is inspired by these challenges is welcome. Are you a student, employee, self-employed, a corporate, governmental worker or researcher, you name it! We are not looking for specific profiles and you do not need to have an idea ready & off the shelf.

What’s in it for you?
An exciting 2 day journey where you get inspired by our experts, learn how to generate ideas to a pitch with your team and can unwind during our fun activities! Oh yeah, we will also feed you!

 

The Challenges



Join us on March 3 and 4 this year to work on one of these 3 themes: 

- Climate Change Adaptation: use the drawdown.org list of 100 solutions as inspiration for impactful carbon reduction initiatives.  Let’s also not forget about water management - if Climate Impact Mitigation is about carbon emissions, Climate Adaptation is about water. 

- Energy Transition: did you know that 50% of our energy needs are related to heating or cooling? And that the surplus heat of industrial processes in the Port of Rotterdam could heat all the residential homes of the province of Zuid Holland?  The internet of Energy, renewable energy, reducing energy needs are all part of the Energy Transition theme. Source: Deltagrid 2050 

- Circularity: In nature, everything is re-used in one way or another, nothing is lost, and waste equals food.  So, how can we intelligently introduce a more circular economic model into our current cradle-to-grave economy, to re-use resources at the same level or in another process?

The Outcome

The best Hackathon ideas will be incorporated in the new Innovation Campus of Living Tomorrow.
This means your teams solutions could get a 5 year visibility to the general public and have an actual impact on how people perceive these future challenges and how to handle them. The winners will get their project realized with the Living Tomorrow team.
