Join the student hackathon Planetary Health

Climate change, Biodiversity loss and Human health are often treated as separate challenges. In reality, the health of the environment is linked to our own health and well-being! One example is the link between poor air quality and asthma or heart diseases. Cities will continue to grow and our environment is rapidly changing. Your task is to take on Planetary Health challenges to ensure the safety and well-being of the Planet and our own. You’ve got this, superhero!

Join the student hackathon Planetary Health (climate, biodiversity, urbanisation and human health interactions) this 26-28 November! During the weekend students of environment / climate / health / social sciences to work together to co-design projects or good practices to tackle Planetary Health challenges. At the end, you and your group will deliver final pitch in the form of project idea, proposals, or a service app demo that address the Planetary Health challenges, with a chance to present it to investors at Slush Y Science. 



Friday 26th will begin with an interactive online Design Thinking workshop held by Aalto Design Factory researchers to guide us in practices and tools that optimize working in interdisciplinary teams and develop creative solutions.
