ABOUT THE HACKATHON

On the weekend of the 19th-20th of September, the Build Back Better Hackathon will bring thousands of people together virtually to work on challenges focused on health, inclusive work, sustainable communities, food systems, education and more to create solutions for a better future for people and planet.

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused shockwaves around the world and exposed cracks in our systems. From the breakdown of supply chains to mass unemployment and racial disparities, things need to change!

To recover from the pandemic, we can continue to paint over the cracks, or we can #BuildBackBetter, together.

We are calling on like-minded organisations and individuals to join us as a Partner or Mentor, or to Submit a Challenge to be solved at the Build Back Better Hackathon! Sign up here or find out more below.
