#Hack4Climate 2017: The first global COP-hackathon
Hack4Climate draws attention to the climate-related importance of IT- based innovation in general, and distributed ledger technologies (DLT, ‘Blockchain’) in particular. It is the first hackathon combining blockchain and climate, and the first linked to a COP climate conference. This September, Hack4Climate has organized 17 preparatory workshops in 17 global blockchain hubs, from San Francisco to Shanghai, Berlin to Johannesburg, and Suriname. Hack4Climate is a global hackathon, bringing together 100 participants from 30 countries for truly hands-on #ClimateAction. Hack4Climate will take place for the first time in parallel to COP23 in Bonn/Germany, from November 12-16, 2017. Hack4Climate is scheduled to take place during upcoming climate conferences, bringing together DLT/blockchain talent, private and public sector innovators, as well as NGOs and academia.
