The #WirVsVirus Hackathon
This is a digital hackaton/participatory project aimed at developing, testing and improving solutions to emerging challenges in the corona crisis. Everywhere in Germany, individuals are working on solutions.
Citizens as well as the ministries had the opportunity to submit their challenges until the Thursday before the hackathon. They asked themselves: What are the most pressing challenges we’re currently facing? What are the problems you would like to see solved? The challenges represent the ideas of individuals from all walks of life in Germany.
Everyone with time, interest and an internet connection was welcome to submit an idea – and we were absolutely floored by the scale of the response.
Specific issues addressed and anticipated impact
Wide range of issues: service delivery, border crossing, social distancing data gathering etc. Objective is to develop creative solutions to these challenges.
