With the climate crisis and global pandemic upon us, the need for change has never been greater. There is an urgent need to innovate - and the timing is now. We see a huge potential for innovations from young, creative minds from Africa, and are therefore hosting this creative hackathon.

The Hackathon will last for 6 weeks. Participants will learn how to design using Ludenso Create, which is an Augmented Reality (AR) Computer-Aided Design (CAD) tool. Over the course of a week, teams will collaborate to develop sustainable and innovative solutions that can help address major challenges in Africa. By connecting teams with the skills, knowledge, tools, and capabilities, we wish to engineer confidence, performance, and growth in innovating sustainable solutions to mitigate the challenges currently faced in Africa.

We invite young, creative doers, startups, developers, students and everyone passionate about technology and making a difference to be part of it.
