Let’s go to #Hack4Climate

Sep 25th
18:30 - 22:30

Most people agree that the ‘blockchain/DLT’ (Digital Ledger Technology) is one of the emerging technologies with the highest potential of worldwide system change. At the same time, most people agree that Climate Change is the defining challenge of our time. Now the question: what happens if you tackle this urgent problem with such a promising technology?

Impact Hub Kings Cross is co-organizing #Hack4Climate, a 4-day Blockchain hackathon held in parallel to the COP climate conference this November in Bonn. To reach out to the blockchain community around the UK, we are organising a preparatory workshop “Let’s go to #Hack4Climate London”.

The goal of this workshop is to introduce blockchain enthusiasts to the climate change topic and develop first ideas of applications. This will give the attendees a real edge when applying to be part of the main Hack4Climate in November in Bonn. It will also help you to network with the local blockchain community and allow you to offer your skills for a worthy cause.

To learn more about Hack4Climate, have a look at the factsheet and the participants’ FAQ.

The program

18:30 Doors open

19:00 Start of event

19:10 Introduction to climate change and the Paris Agreement and a demonstration how blockchain is relevant

You will be probably surprised how many of the climate change challenges can be supported using the blockchain technology – we surely were.

We’re looking forward to having some great London teams apply for Bonn – a vital part of Hack4Climate’s success!
