SpaceHACK For Sustainability: Use Satellite Data to Make a Difference

March 24 - March 25

SpaceHACK For Sustainability

The United Nations’ Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs) are 17 ambitious targets that address the world’s most pressing social, economic, and environmental issues. The SDGs were established to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure peace and prosperity for all by the year 2030. In light of this, the SpaceHACK 4 Sustainability Hackathon is taking a unique approach to tackling these global goals. In light of these pressing societal and environmental issues, it has become increasingly vital to take action and find solutions. That’s why the SpaceHACK for Sustainability Hackathon is stepping up to the challenge. By bringing together innovative students and faculty, this hackathon aims to harness the power of satellite data to take steps towards addressing the United Nations’ Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs).

This exciting two-day event promises to be an exciting learning experience, where participants will be divided into small groups and tasked with developing a 5-minute presentation that explores how satellite data can be used to achieve the UN’s SDGs. Using Planet satellite data and Google Earth Engine, students will work to create solutions that tackle the following three tracks: sustainable groundwater usage in Nepal, reducing wildfire risk and addressing social disparities at the Wildland Urban Interface, and addressing the impact of climate change and poverty with a focus on Brazilian Favelas.

The presentations will be evaluated by a panel of expert judges, and winning teams will be awarded prizes for their outstanding efforts. So come and join the SpaceHACK 4 Sustainability Hackathon, and be part of the solution to some of the world’s most pressing problems. Let’s work together to create a better future for all!
