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. There will be a $3,000 seed grant given to the winning team!

This year’s hackathon will focus on how to better prepare for and respond to humanitarian emergencies through the lens of exploring the community centered design. Students will work together over the course of two days to develop creative ideas for innovative programs, systems, or technologies that could improve the humanitarian user experience when responding to disasters or conflict.
