A Building Bridges Event
“A hackathon is a 24-hour collective intelligence moment to develop practical solutions to concrete problems. Nowadays, institutions recognize that social interactions, co-creation, and pooling ideas at large are core to advancing innovation.
Participants with various expertise and cultural backgrounds meet and work together in a hands-on approach to overcome a challenge. In an informal, playful but dynamic environment, they (i) create non-trivial social ties, (ii) learn from each other’s diverse backgrounds, and (iii) get pride from achieving together.
The hackathon way is instrumental to ground solid use cases, which may subsequently evolve into robust products or startups.
In the spirit of other hackathons conducted by corporates and universities across the globe, the Sustainable Finance Hack is a unique creative problem-solving moment. Over 24 hours, it brings together some of the brightest minds from universities, international organizations, and the private sector to solve non-trivial sustainable finance problems, such as:
- Up-skilling and career development for sustainable finance
- Technologies for transparency and accountability
- Earth observation and data science
- Business and human rights
- Behavioral economics and nudging
- Measuring environmental impacts on investments“
