Bartlett Hacks: Climate solutions in a time of pandemic

02 Jun 2020

Bartlett Hacks is an online hackathon designed to foster collaboration and develop ideas for the urgent climate emergency we still face during the coronavirus crisis and helping build resilience for a post-pandemic world.

For those who don’t know, a hackathon is an intense brainstorming marathon where people with different skills get together, exchange ideas, form teams around ideas and develop working solutions over the course of a 48-hour period. The brainstorming sessions are well structured, and the teams are helped throughout the hackathon by mentors.

Join in the conversation through the Slack workspace and find like-minded individuals to collaborate with from your chosen track. Each track has a mentor to help refine your ideas and solutions. Once you’ve got a team together, register your team and wait until the hackathon goes live at 8am 24 June 2020. Across the 48-hours, you’ll have chances to check in with your mentor and ensure you’re producing your best idea to submit for evaluation before 26 June 2020.

There are prizes up for grabs for the best solutions:

Overall winners:
1st – £1000 for the team
2nd – £600 for the team
3rd – £500 for the team

Three highly commended teams:
