HACK BELGIUM IS RIGHT FOR EVERYONE
Educating people, fighting poverty and discrimination, making people healthier and helping them to find meaningful work.
Taking care of our home
Because we only have one. Managing water and sanitation, making better food, promoting clean and accessible energy, building sustainable cities…
Technology is the key. We want to leverage it to good ends. To make change happen quicker and better.
During the event participants will take on “challenges” : about 36 societal issues in desperate need for creative solutions. You may play a role in defining those challenges.
