How can we improve the apps we use hundreds of times per day to be better for our overall wellbeing?
It's time to rethink technology.
Technology plays a significant role in our lives. In fact, many of us can probably think of 3-4 apps that we use and engage with hundreds of times per day. These apps have huge influence on our day-to-day activities, mood, and how we spend our time. But they are far from perfect.
Join us June 9th for a day-long innovation competition bringing together tech designers, coders, developers, social scientists, educators, ethicists, philosophers and all users impacted by tech, for better or worse. We'll redesign solutions to existing apps and tools, updating them with more humane and socially conscious offerings.
The event features free acupuncture, food and drinks, and a talk by Dr David Levy, author of Mindful Tech.
What's different about this hackathon?
We'll work in teams to improve technology for the greater good. Participants will redesign apps and tools by infusing them with new features that better serve our collective mental and emotional health. At the end of the hackathon, participants will present their pitches showing their new features.
Who can participate?
This hackathon is open to everyone, both students and non-students, from any background. Don't worry if you don't know how to code. No coding is necessary at all during this event. In fact, there will be no coding! This isn't a traditional hackathon. We welcome tech designers, coders, developrs, social scientists, educators, ethicists, philosophers, mental health practitioners, academics, and anyone who is affected by technology.
