Registration to the hackathon. Enrollment is stilla open as the teams would like to get more members.

For cities, large events are an annual challenge which is seen and heard in the city and involving up to hundreds of thousands of people. 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.

Hackathon is organized together with Turku University of Applied Sciences, Sitra, Baltic Sea Action Group, TRY OUT! -project and other cooperation partners. The TOP3 winning teams will get a chance to present their idea at the Tall Ships Race in Turku in July. Also, the winning teams will get prizes on the camp.
