CrisisHack 2017


Are you ready to make a difference?

Our world is in constant danger from natural and man-made disasters. The risk of flood, famine, hurricanes, earthquakes and disease is ever present. We’re already seeing the impact of climate change in rising sea levels and extreme weather events. Aid budgets are stretched and volunteers under pressure. Do you have the ideas, skills, tools and passion to deliver game-changing capabilities to the global humanitarian response community?

Then join Geovation at the Urban Innovation Centre on 02 to 04 March for the CrisisHack 2017, organised in partnership with Defence Science and Technology & IBM.

Using real data sets from real disasters, CrisisHack 2017 wants you to combine geospatial tools and technology to create solutions to improve global humanitarian response. You’ll be given a real crisis case study to stimulate your thinking around four user needs that have been validated by real humanitarian organisations.
