26-28 Apr: NEA Hackathon to create solutions for a sustainable Singapore

Join the NEA hackathon where NEA's datasets will be available to create solutions. Come brainstorm ideas, work with innovative people and create awesome solutions for a sustainable Singapore!
Help create solutions to questions like:
  • Can technology and a smart idea help build communities and encourage everybody to make better choices for the environment?
  • Can prompt reporting and crowdsourcing predict problems before they happen?
  • Can Technology and social media encourage people to support green projects ?
  • How can we use technology to educate people and quantify the environmental impact of their lifestyles?
  • How can we inspire and incentivise behaviour change for our citizens and build a supportive community?
  • How can we encourage people of all age groups to commit to better habits for a sustainable Singapore?
