Green Hackathon Hong Kong 2019

The Green Hackathon is an event in which a large number of people meet and collaborate in small teams with an objective to “hack” or solve a problem statement as defined by the organizer through a short and fixed period (typically lasting from one day to a couple of days). Based on the problem statement, teams will ideate new solutions and develop prototype and business model of their idea. At the end of the hackathon, teams will prepare a short and intense pitch their ideas & prototype to a panel of judges. The event aims to bring retailers and young people together to develop ideas that can be applied in retail shops to promote customers' awareness and practices to protect the environment.

Problem Statement: How to influence consumer at customer touch points that would empower them to minimize waste in consumption through reduce, reuse & recycle.
