Shaping the future > Creative and Cultural Industries hackathon (Russia)
Culture and creativity is a driving force in regional and international sustainable development, and grassroots ideas are at its core. If you are passionate about making the world better through innovative problem-solving and want to contribute towards shaping a more inclusive world, we invite you to join the creative and cultural industries hackathon and build a more sustainable future together.
The core topic of the hackathon is sustainability, focusing on ideas that help us meet the needs of the present without compromising our future. Sustainability is the key to shape a future we all want to live in and leave behind for the next generations.
Defined as the process of maintaining changing needs while ensuring a balanced environment, sustainable projects focus on reducing negative human impact, solving social challenges, ensuring healthy ecosystems and livable environments, creating more ethical products, as well as adjusting individual lifestyles. The hackathon will challenge the participants to offer and develop ideas that enhance both current and future potential to meet human needs and aspirations.
The hackathon is open to individuals from any country who are at least 18 years old. You can be a student, business owner, NGO representative, an employee of a private company, a state or municipal institution - no restrictions apply. Up to 80 participants will be selected from applications, based on your time of registration and motivation.
Participation in the hackathon is free of charge, and the organizers will cover travel (only for residents in Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Russia or Sweden) and accommodation costs (for all participants), as well as assist in organizing participants' travel visa (if necessary). The participants will stay at the same venue where the hackathon is held, and will be provided all the necessary materials.
