Let's Hack the Crisis, Sweden!

Hack the Crisis is putting together online hackathons to offer solutions on how to use tech for crisis response and deal with the post-crisis era. Events ran by local communities all over the world are popping up to help and together work on solutions. It's time for Sweden to, with joint forces, join the movement. 

Backed by the Swedish Government, Openhack joined forces with Hack for Sweden to ship the online hackathon Hack the Crisis Sweden, which occured on the 3-6 of April 2020, with 7439 participants from 91 countries, 200+ mentors, 130 partner organisations and 95 jury members.

Participants created solutions for the following categories:

  • Save Lives
  • Digital - Save Lives
  • Save Communities
  • Digital - Save Communities
  • Save Businesses
  • Digital - Save Businesses

      The aim was to emerge from the crisis stronger than ever. Now you can check out some of the best ideas from the event and how far they've come since the event, as well as the West Coast Hack for Impact project.
