On September 11- 13, CopenX & our Creative Ports' Project Partner Filmby Aarhus will facilitate a digital hackathon on how XR technologies can contribute to the UN’s Global Goals no. 13 - ClimateAction.
The goal of this 42-hour hackathon is to create solutions that either (1) strengthen resilience and adaptive capacity to climate-related risks, (2) focus on integrating climate change measures in national policies and strategies or (3) build knowledge and capacity to meet climate change. The event will will be run digitally due to the current situation with COVID-19 and bring together up to 45 international and national participants.
In addition to advisors who will guide the participants on an ongoing basis, experts will be invited to bring inspiration and motivation in order to prepare and guide the participants to create the best solutions. On the final day, the solutions will be presented to a panel of experts from the field of XR technologies. The panel of experts will also act as a jury and select 1 winner who is honored with funds to further develop the product.
CopenX & Filmby Aarhus Hackathon is presented in collaboration with Create Converge, a project under the European Union Interreg North Sea Region VB Programme. The purpose of Create Converge is to boost the creative, digital, and tech industries in the North Sea Region.
Filmby Aarhus is Aarhus Municipality’s focus on film, media production and digital experiences. Filmby Aarhus’ strategy, called The Big Picture, centers around facilitating the meeting between digital creative content and more traditional sectors who can benefit from using digital content.
