Do you love the topic of sustainability? Do your eyes light up at the mention of renewable energy, sustainable manufacturing, and water conservation? Do you want to meet other folks in the Valley who are just as passionate as you are about building more sustainable communities? If you answered yes to any of those questions, join us this Wednesday!
The Smart City Hack (SCH), Arizona’s premier civic technology competition, is offering a free sustainability workshop hosted by the Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability at Arizona State University. Colin Tetreault, Senior Sustainability Scholar, will discuss the biggest sustainability issues facing our cities today and identify where advances in technology can help drive urban innovations that result in smarter, greener cities.
This workshop is one of many in a series designed to support citizens in developing innovative digital solutions for the Smart City Hack competition. This international competition challenges developers, designers, and entrepreneurs to create functioning, marketable tech tools that help solve pressing civic challenges. We want YOU to help create technology solutions that will build smarter, better, more sustainable cities, while improving the quality of life for residents in cities around the world. The Grand Prize Winner of this competition will represent Phoenix in the international finals, which take place this November in Barcelona at the Smart City Expo 2016.
Whether you already have an idea or are just interested in learning more, join us this Wednesday. There will be opportunities for networking before and after the workshop, and if you do have an idea for a product, service, or tool related to sustainability, you’ll have the opportunity to share, discuss, and receive valuable feedback.
