"UP Singapore, WWF's Earth Hour and NUS Entrepreneurship Centre (a division of NUS Enterprise) will host the "Reducing Our Environmental Impact Hackathon" from 25th to 27th Jan 2013.

Tackling the issue of Energy Conservation and Efficiency, the Hackathon will bring together a broad spectrum of scientists, architects, sustainability experts, economists, government researchers, policy makers, design thinkers, developers, programmers, and creatives who want to create real ways to help people better protect our environment.

This hackathon is supported by WWF, National Environment Agency, Infocomm Development Authority and Economic Development Board."

  • I WILL, WILL YOU? – Solutions to drive behavioural change and quantify the impact of individual actions, with the potential to be adopted as Earth Hour’s flagship application.
  • SMART CHOICES – Test out the latest technology to help individuals and businesses optimise energy usage and reduce their environmental impact.
  • CITY SOLUTIONS – Tackle environmental challenges with creative solutions that help Singapore to become ‘A City in a Garden’."
