Why? We live in the middle of an unheard crisis – a situation that is new to all of us. There’s an immense need to battle problems caused by the immediate emergency while also looking two steps ahead – how will we deal with the expected massive changes to our economy, workplaces, healthcare and environment as we find our world order transformed—perhaps, beyond recognition?

That’s why we are organising The Global Hack – we want to help you to help!

We all have found ourselves in a unique situation, where we are – quite literally – all in this together. The entire world is looking for solutions to the same looming problems at the same time and if we move fast enough, the global hack could have a social and economical impact beyond our imagination. Join us to make it into a reality!
