Join us and hack for good!
Hackathon for Good is an AWS Nordic annual event for the social good that challenges hackers to create technological initiatives and solutions to address local and global issues. Developers and Digital Solution Designers across Nordic countries will engage, collaborate, and innovate together to solve specific problems that addressed by charities or non-profit organizations to improve the communities and create a better future for the Nordic countries.
In 2019 AWS works together with Håll Sverige Rent (Keep Sweden Tidy), a well-known Swedish NGO that promotes recycling and combats litter through influencing people's attitudes and behavior in order to encourage a sustainable development. Once a year Håll Sverige Rent organizes the Nordic Coastal Cleanup Day, and in 2019, over 48,000 people were engaged in helping cleaning up the coasts across the Nordics in one day.
Are you willing to contribute your skills and help Håll Sverige Rent? The winning team will get sponsored tickets to AWS re:Invent in December in Las Vegas. Join us today!
What you will do
During the 12-hour hackathon hosted by AWS and Håll Sverige Rent, participants will apply their skills as well as experience to help solve current challenges that Håll Sverige Rent is facing today for hosting Nordic Coast Cleaning Day. You'll be presented with a set of clear challenges that we need your help with.
