Rethinking our global relationship to energy starts with our own personal and individual efforts.
(Toolkits have not been emailed yet. Stay tuned.)
The Hacking Energy Culture Hackathon will focus on imagining creative and innovative ways to make our relationship to energy responsible, exciting and rewarding. As a 24 hour sprint, the hackathon aims to generate new ways to interface with energy consumption, waste, and preservation.
Check out our Design Hackathon in New York City from 2012.
Registration is open to designers, developers, educators, storytellers, and anyone else with an entrepreneurial spirit. At the beginning of the hackathon, we'll help form teams that balance skill sets between all participants. Teams can be formed before the event if you already have partners in mind.
Registered participants receive an downloadable toolkit one week before the hackathon. A detailed agenda and tips on how to get started will be shared. Throughout the event, creatives from both GOOD and MICA will be mentoring teams.
Ideas are pitched to a panel of judges on Sunday. Members of the public will have a chance to vote for ideas online. This highest number of community votes will determine the People Choice Award. Visiting critics will award Best in Show based on creativity, resourcefulness, feasibility of implementation, and storytelling. Winning ideas will be featured on good.is and published in GOOD Magazine.
Snacks and refreshments are provided on behalf of MICA and our sponsors.
