Can you sustain 36 hours non-stop work for a more sustainable world?
What is Green Hack?
GreenHack is an international hackathon tackling sustainable development and future challenges. We are not afraid of the big issues. Climate change, overconsumption, irresponsible production and poor resource management. Let’s take them on.
We are certain that technology, together with our willingness to behave differently, is key to solving 21st century issues. Will you give it a try?
Over a hundred masters of innovation, nascent technologies and new materials, product and service design as well as human psyche will fight the environmental doom mankind is facing. The battle will last two days, non-stop. Dare to join in?
PRIZE MONEY: 5 000 €
Main prize: 2 500 €
2nd Prize: 1 500 €
3rd Prize: 1 000 €
1. Beverage packaging VS. augmented reality
Use beverage packaging (PET, glass, can) as a gateway to augmented reality – the story of mineral water, that will show:
– Background information about water – how it is created and explaining its bioquality
– Sustainability and circularity – what happens to the beverage packaging after use
– The importance of a proper drinking regime
2. Bottle deposit scheme
Majority of beverage packaging (PET bottles and cans) in 12 European countries is collected through a system of machines where it is necessary to input uncrumpled beverage packaging only. That might be a problem. Develop a solution that would allow the beverage packaging to be identified in all conditions!
3. Deposit bottles home storage
If the return of crumpled PET bottles to collection machines is not resolved in the foreseeable future, how can it be easier for people to store undamaged empty PET bottles at home? Think of the best solution so that the bottles can be transferred to the store convenietly.
4. Take me home: Electronic Devices Take-back Campaign
Come up with a digital communication campaign strategy including execution of your creative idea to motivate people to return all sorts of old unused electric devices they may have at home to bring those to any T-Mobile branch. These mainly include mobile phones, tablets, PCs, routers, chargers, powerbanks and set-top boxes. Make sure you make the whole process convenient, fun and sustainable for your target group
5. Wrap me green: alternative to bubble paper envelopes
Come up with an alternative to the common bubble paper envelope. Everyone uses them. We still send out forty thousand phones and other accessories in traditional packaging that is so hard to recycle. Big changes start with what is within our reach, so we ask you to propose a different kind of wrap: sustainable, safe, affordable and easy-to-use. Think of new materials, new technologies, new behaviours and sharing economy.
6. Material Passports for Circular economy
7. Circular Economy & Transportation
8. Effective solutions in Energy crisis
Come up with a new creative strategy for Effective solutions in context of gas and electricity crisis in the Czech Republic. How would you achieve more efficient gas and electricity usage for Czech industry, households and storage? What kind of technologies – green hydrogen, heat pumps, biogas, insulations etc.; in which new forms – community centers, new gas pipelines etc. would you develop?
Challenge partner: Deloitte
9. Grid Control by drones
We have thousands of pictures from drones of the national Grid infrastructure (Masts and mast´s components – f.e. isolators). The task is to recognize types of masts on the pictures – “mast types recognition”. Hack team should prepare the solution for recognition specific masts by name and deliver output.
