Hack for a Just and Sustainable World

Now in its third year, the BSR Sustainability Hackathon will assemble developers, designers, and anyone interested in creating tools and services that drive positive change for people and planet.

We’ll kick off with welcome receptions on Thursday September 17 in San Francisco, San Diego, and New York for you to meet the organizers, and other hackers and find a team if you’d like. The receptions are optional to attend.

The top five teams will be invited to pitch virtually on a webinar to the esteemed panel of judges on October 26. The winning team will be announced shortly thereafter, and the top team will have the opportunity to present to more than 1,000 sustainability professionals at the BSR Conference 2015.
