Can you use design thinking to save the reef?

Innovation, Evolution and Education are all keys to securing human longevity. So how would you use these tools to save the Great Barrier Reef from declining water quality and climate change?

Join an incredible list of experts and a diverse group of participants in the first ever creative hackathon dedicated to finding solutions to problems facing the Great Barrier Reef.

What's a hackathon?

Originating from Silicon Valley, hackathons inspire teams to join forces and use innovation and creativity to solve problems.

Leading Hack the Reef is a selection of innovative thinkers, scientists, designers and technologists from all corners of Australia who will combine their expertise to guide participants through the hackathon process.

Why attend?

Hack the Reef is open and welcoming of everyone interested in participating. You may be an entrepreneur, student, creative or simply an engaged and interested person.

Participants will gain knowledge and insights about the Great Barrier Reef, learn new techniques to solve problems, practice design thinking and implementation, as well as connect the dots with future mentors, friends and colleagues along the way.

Teams will work in small groups to come up with a creative solution to a complex problem, and present their winning concept with the Hackathon facilitators and partners.

The winners will earn tickets to Myriad (29-31 March) in Brisbane, where they will present their winning concept with the Hackathon facilitators and partners.

Limited places are available, so get in quick and register at www.myriad.live/hackthereef to reserve your free spot for this awesome opportunity!
