Hackathon för att lösa Coronaproblem

På nätet

Hack The Cri­sis är ett Hackathon som går av stapeln 3 april och håller på till 6 april.

Hack the Crisis

I van­li­ga fall möts folk upp för Hackathons men den här gån­gen är fokus något helt annat och rek­om­men­da­tion­er­na i samhäl­let är att vi ska ha hål­la dis­tansen till varan­dra. Därav kom­mer Hack The Cri­sis vara helt dig­i­talt. Men den här gån­gen är det inte enbart män­niskor med kun­skap inom kod­ning som har möj­ligheten att delta. Alla med idéer om hur coro­na-krisen ska lösas och under­lät­tas med dig­i­ta­la medel kan delta.

Hack­a­tonet har tre delar som är föl­jande:

The Hack the Cri­sis Swe­den is divid­ed into three chal­lenges and two tracks. The chal­lenges are about what chal­lenge you are try­ing to cre­ate a solu­tion for, and the tracks are about how you are solv­ing it.

Let’s start with the Chal­lenges: Save lives, Save com­mu­ni­ties and Save busi­ness­es.

Save lives

Health­care offi­cials togeth­er with the med­ical indus­try are rac­ing against the virus, try­ing to find new and bet­ter solu­tions. Could there be oth­er (indi­rect) solu­tions to help indi­vid­u­als stay safe?

Save communities

Com­mu­ni­ties are strug­gling to keep their oper­a­tions and com­mu­ni­ca­tions run­ning now that phys­i­cal dis­tanc­ing is the new norm. How could the com­mu­ni­ties main­tain their (online) com­mu­ni­ca­tion and pro­mote social sol­i­dar­i­ty?

Save businesses

COVID-19 is impact­ing busi­ness­es hard. Orga­ni­za­tions find them­selves strug­gling finan­cial­ly and many may have to lay off peo­ple. What kind of new rev­enue streams can busi­ness­es cre­ate on a tight sched­ule? Are there solu­tions to ensure that the after­math of all of this goes smooth­ly?

The solu­tion you and your team will hack on should fit in one of these chal­lenges.

Hack the Crisis


Bakom Hack The Cri­sis står bland annat den sven­s­ka regerin­gen (DIGG — Gov­ern­ment Agency for Dig­i­tal­iza­tion).

– Swe­den as a soci­ety is fac­ing great chal­lenges as a result of COVID-19. There­fore it is imper­a­tive that we mobi­lize all good forces there is to meet the chal­lenges soci­ety face right now. 
– I encour­age each and every­one to sign up at www.hackthecrisis.se to con­tribute with dig­i­tal solu­tions. Solu­tions can range from crit­i­cal resources to sup­port for iso­lat­ed peo­ple.
