Hack the Crisis New Zealand
48-hour Innovation Challenge | 100 percent online.
Around the world more than 30 countries have run online #hackthecrisis events. Now, it’s our turn. In collaboration with Callaghan Innovation and startup networks across the country, we’re challenging Kiwis to design, test and bring to life innovative ideas for life in New Zealand beyond COVID-19.
Ideas can come from anywhere: we’re looking for developers, designers, educators, mums, tradies, students, non-profit organisations, CEOs and librarians. We want people to jump in, sleeves rolled up, ready to out think, out design and out manoeuvre this crisis.
Are you ready?
Tackle one of three themes
How can we help businesses get through the economic downturn? What kind of new revenue streams can they create? What initiatives could give our economy the biggest kickstart possible?
Physical distancing and isolation have changed how we interact with each other. Can we find new ways to stay connected and support each other?
Resilience and wellbeing
How can we look after our nation’s mental health and wellbeing? What do people need to be resilient and thrive in times of uncertainty? How do we deal with the less-visible impacts of COVID-19?
