Random Hacks of Kindness ingeniously tasks international computer hackers with solving real world problems

Random Hacks of Kindness (RHoK), a climate change adaptation event hosted in partnership between Google, Yahoo!, Microsoft, NASA and the World Bank, is dedicated to using technology to make the world a better place.

Some of the brightest minds in computer programming will convene June 4th and 5th in 20 locations around the world to tackle several technological problems related to climate change adaptation and disaster risk management.

This is an excellent opportunity for organizations dealing with climate change adaptation to both benefit from and contribute to this process through providing a “problem definition” for the programmers to tackle during this event. Submitting a problem definition is free, open to everyone and the solutions can have real impact.

Past RHoK events focused on various aspects of disaster risk management and resulted in software solutions that are being used on the ground today by the World Bank and other organizations around the world.

RHoK is inviting problem definitions, and ACT will be contributing in the area of water and climate change adaptation.

Please consult The Guide for Experts for information on types of problem the event can address, and how to submit your problem definition.
