Circular Economy Hackathon

Circular Economy Hackathon

Join Impact Hub Berlin’s Circular Economy Hackathon and be part of a weekend of innovation and inspiration.

A circular economy turns resources into products that can be reused, repurposed, and eventually recycled. On a global scale, this approach can reduce the massive stress placed on our planet by our current linear ‘take-make-waste’ system, bringing down carbon emissions and making for a healthier, happier world.

Impact Hub Berlin’s Circular Economy Hackathon seeks to encourage circular economy innovation, and bring passionate people together to co-create solutions. The hackathon will focus on several sub-topics within circularity (such as fashion, plastics, food).

Over three days, you’ll receive expert input from Impact Hub Berlin’s team and partners on how to develop and refine your circular economy innovations, and connect virtually with collaborators who can drive your collective vision forwards.

The most promising innovation to present their progress at the end of the hackathon will receive a 1,000 EUR prize to be spent on prototyping a solution.

All who is interest in new ideas in the field of the circular economy – whether developers, designers, entrepreneurs, students, activists or other – are welcome to take part. Get one of the 50 Early Bird tickets for free now! After these places are booked, there will be an entry cost of 10 EUR per person to cover costs.
