We established the reverse hackathon to encourage dialogue in and support the development of creative solutions that allow for greater and healthier relationships between people and technology.
Using principles in human-computer interaction, humane design, software development, and tech ethics, Rehack urges participants to think deeply about their interactions with technology and redesign consumer tech products in a more meaningful, socially responsible way. No coding experience is necessary!
This year, Rehack and the Princeton Student Climate Initiative are collaborating to organize the first-ever virtual reverse hackathon on climate action. Project tracks include consumerism, transportation, food, and education.
Note: This event is only open to those who have already applied at http://rehack.co — we are not sending updates through Devpost. If you are interested in staying in the loop, sign up for our emailing list at our website!
