Stephen Robert ’62 Hall, 280 Brook Street

Organized by the Center for Human Rights and Humanitarian Studies, Hack for Humanity is an annual humanitarian focused hackathon at Brown University that brings together students to learn about the most pressing needs in the human rights and humanitarian sphere and develop creative ideas for innovative programs or technologies that could help improve the lives of disaster and conflict affected communities around the world.

This year's hackathon will focus on how to better prepare for and respond to the impacts of climate change on societies across the globe. Students will work together over the course of two days to develop creative ideas for innovative programs, systems, or technologies that could improve how we anticipate, prepare for, and/or respond to climate induced disasters.
