Lisbon Green Hackathon is an all night long marathon in which teams of up to four participants must come up with, develop, program and build a prototype for something that will hopefully make the world a better place.
Our Hackathon is a part of an international initiative (http://www.greenhackathon.com/) that defies students and teachers, schools and universities to promote the use of cutting-edge technology to shape tomorrow into something more sustainable. Green Hackathons have happened all over the world since the beginning of this initiative. Cities like London, stockholm, Lisbon, Tokyo, Fukushima and Zurich have all joined the movement and there’s no signs of it stopping since there are more upcoming events already scheduled.
In Lisbon the hackathon is organized by Oficina das Energias, a student group from the university of Lisbon, who are studying Environmental engineering. This is our second hackathon, with the first one being launched in early 2016.
This year we are at it again, with a bigger hackathon with bigger prizes for the three winning teams.
