As part of the Paris Agreement and in line with its National Energy and Climate Plan, Estonia aims to reduce CO2 emissions by 13% by 2030.
To achieve this goal, individuals and organizations must adopt fundamental behavioral and cultural changes in order to reduce consumption of fossil fuels such as coal, oil and natural gas, reducing drastically the collective carbon footprint.
Cities play an important role and should design and develop climate-friendly, sustainable urban areas and infrastructure, legislating and enforcing on environmental policies.
Data-driven technological innovation plays a key role in an energy efficient circular economy, like enabling effective waste management, increasing the level and variety of materials being recycled, and incentivizing renewable energies usage.
Your challenge for this DeepHack is to create new or improved digital solution to help Estonia reach its CO2 emission goals.
The outcome of the hackathon should be a practical demonstrator or MVP of a digital solution contributing to Estonia environmental sustainability goals. Potential solution domains include aggregating open and social networks data, enabling new services for energy and raw materials savings, using gamification to motivate people to save energy and recycle more, or creating ICT solutions to make waste management more efficient.
The winning teams will:
- Receive a share of €4,000 in prize money
- Fast track to Prototron Startup Competition
