Climate Hackathon took place online 22-26 March 2021. The goal was to raise awareness about the Climate issues and at the same time create a platform for our developer audience to create innovative solutions with our Azure Services.
What made this Hackathon unique, was the collaboration with non-profit and non-governmental organizations that have a key role in solving some of the climate challenges but might not have the resources or technical competencies to do so on their own. These organizations provided real life challenges for the Hackathon participants to solve. The challenges were categorized into four tracks: carbon, ecosystem, waste, and water.
The outcome of the hackathon was 14 quality solutions and 3 winners:
We interviewed the team behind the winner of the Ecosystem track, Purple Penguins to get to know them, their motives to join the hackathon, as well as their learnings during the hackathon and how they want to apply these learnings in their upcoming projects.
