The AI for the Environment Hackathon Festival is back for another year.

This year our problems to solve are based on the five Key Environmental Outcomes (AI for the Environment Report 2022). We have expanded these to make them more relevant to all participants in 2023.

We are sourcing use cases from NGOs and citizen science groups to provide real problems to solve that are relevant to each location. These organisations provide subject matter expertise ahead of time and on the day. Participants are also welcome to bring their own problems to solve and we encourage early sharing of these ideas so that we can do our best to help with data sets and technology support.

You will learn many new skills, meet like-minded peers, and network with sponsors and mentors.

At the end of the hackathon you and your team demonstrate your project in front of a judging panel who select the winner. The best four winners have a chance to pitch their idea at the AI Summit 23.

Hackathons are a safe space for people from diverse skill sets to come together around a problem to solve. When forming your team, think about the Dream Team Model of hipsters, hackers, and hustlers – a good mix will help you to be successful.
