Hacks 4 Humanity has partnered with Arizona State University Project Humanities program, and EqualityTV, the organizers of Wonder Women Hacks, to offer a unique opportunity to inspire innovators to change the world and build technology in service of humanity.           

                                    

The mission of Hacks 4 Humanity is to create technology solutions and initiatives that will contribute to the social good and address the needs of humanity using the 7 principles of ASU’s Project Humanities “Humanity 101” program." 

 

This hackathon explores the 7 Principles of the “Humanity 101” curriculum. Together they create a unique opportunity to be reconnected with our humanity using compelling values and technology as a foundation. Hackers will develop cutting-edge technology solutions that will solve complex challenges and allow them to engage and innovate in the following seven areas:

 

INTEGRITY: How can we build a platform, community or initiative that maintains integrity? Data privacy?

 

EMPATHY: How can we reconnect with humanity and empathize with the challenges facing others?

 

FORGIVENESS: What can be created that will allow us to practice and demonstrate forgiveness culturally and personally?

 

RESPECT: How can we learn to work with and/or engage and help others?

 

KINDNESS: What can we build to promote and encourage random or intentional acts of kindness?

 

SELF REFLECTION: Can we explore technology that allows us to dig deeper into ourselves and therefore create personal change?

 

COMPASSION: Can we see the world and others differently? What can we build to address the issues affecting humanity?

 

We will utilize open data sets collected from non-profit organizations, city initiatives and community needs to build empowering and unique challenges that will inspire the hackers to reimagine their role as a socially responsible innovator.

 

Participants will build with open API's provided by our sponsors and have an opportunity to interact with some of the top tech companies in the nation! Cash and other prizes available!
