We’ve seen technology transforming our lives at every angle but we have mostly failed to use it to solve society's most pressing issue: accelerating sustainability.
With the #Green4Europe Hackathon Series, we’re providing space for people who are passionate about making a difference to innovate together – to find sustainable solutions with the help of professional mentorship, access to international partner networks and on-site expert support. We’re connecting sustainability innovators across Europe and you’re invited!
