What is ChangeMakers'ON hackathonabout?

ChangeMakers’ON Hackathon 2019 is the third edition of the very first International social hackathon – made with passion, love and good will of experienced partners from all over the Europe. It is not only an event – it’s also a movement which was created to empower young and initiative adults to create social good and innovations. ChangeMakers’ON doesn’t like small talks and ideas “on the paper”. ChangeMakers’ON was born to have a REAL RESULT in your hands.
This year we are clearly focused on SOCIAL & TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATIONS with the mission to bring all makers, engineers, do-gooders, executives, computer scientists, inventors, innovators who are making things that are not just nice to have, but that people need. C’MON wants to join people identifying, prototyping, and scaling technologies and practices making the World a Better Place to Live In.
