In Code We Trust - Responsible Innovation for a Flourishing Society
Hackathon for young people between the ages 15 and 28 living in Bavaria
You care about the functioning of our societies and have ideas how digital tools and applications can help improve it? You care about challenges connected to the environment, public and private health, cybersecurity or democratic practice? What issues need to be brought under control ASAP? And how can apps or other digital tools help in advancing these goals? Do you have answers to these questions? Then go ahead and be a part of our hackathon “In Code we Trust – Responsible Innovation for a Flourishing Society.”
Draft and create a software-based solution for society’s biggest issues and upload it to the hackathon website.
You can hand in projects in the following topical fields:
- Fighting Disinformation
- Environment and Climate
- Digital Health
Be a part of this dynamic process and help to strengthen and foster our world!
