Challenge Highlight: Blue Planet Hackathon
From a population of about 700 million people in the mid-1700s, the current world population now stands at 7.6 billion, indicating a growth of over 950 percent in less than 300 years.
This unbelievably rapid rate of population growth and events such as industrialization, the impact on the environment has been catastrophic. Extinction of animal and bird species, pollution of air, water and soil, climate change, global warming, and the reduction of natural resources and forest cover are but a few outcomes of not caring for our planet.
The situation is critical, and it is important to gather all resources and work cohesively towards protecting this beautiful planet. This hackathon aims to bring together developers, designers, thinkers, and creators to build a better and more sustainable future.
With technology paving the way for the future, it makes sense that we leverage it to save the planet we call home. Be a part of the Blue Planet Hackathon and let your ideas make a difference.
