Organizing these events requires effective solutions in each sector. One of the essential sectors of event organizing is sanitation and its trouble-free arrangement.
In the POOP 2.0 Hackathon the participants will innovate a sustainable implementation for event sanitationin terms of circular economy. For the time being sanitation waste is often a lost resource and according to the principles of circular economy it should be utilized more than it is now.
