Hack Responsible Tech 2019

24-27 September 2019

 

Recent developments show the impact but also challenges that technology and the digital transformation have on Danish businesses, society and the planet. It’s time to get creative, innovative and pitch your ideas to challenges organizations face! From September 24 to September 27, we will explore possible futures of blockchain as a solution to some of these grand challenges. 

Be a role model in developing blockchain solutions with a positive impact on people’s lives and foster sustainable development, engage with forward-thinking students, academics, and network with practitioners. 

Join us for the four-day Hackathon on Responsible Management and Blockchain Technology, the two Debate Days and the Bachelor and Master thesis competition.

CHALLENGES

About Circular IKEA 

We want to create an IKEA business model that is sustainable and that enables 1 billion people to live within the boundaries of one planet. Our vision, to create a better everyday life for the many people, is our inspiration. We must transform our way of working – from linear to circular, from only using to also regenerating resources. As a business reliant on natural resources and people, it will also mean that we can secure the future of our business, our value chain and the livelihoods of the millions of people that contribute to it.

Blockchain technology for enabling circular economy models

With finite natural resources being depleted and several planetary boundaries being at risk, companies like IKEA are looking into circular economy models to address these challenges. How can blockchain technologies be used to enable retailers to transition to more circular customer offers?

About

Oxfam IBIS is working for a just world in which all people have equal access to education, influence and resources. Together with our partners, Oxfam IBIS combats global inequality and poverty. Their mission: 

Locally: We strengthen individual rights and opportunities to take part in society by ensuring access to knowledge and good education.

Nationally: We support democratic development that promotes collective rights and popular participation in policy decisions to benefit the poor and oppressed groups.

Globally: We defend poor people’s interests and we find intelligent solutions to structural problems causing global economic inequality and poverty.

Using blockchain technology for streamlining operations

Transferring money to the partners around the world is a cumbersome, overly bureaucratic process for Oxfam IBIS and the development sector as a whole. Despite the pressing need of the aid projects to get regularly funded, the complex governance structure of Oxfam makes it impossible to complete the operation without first securing all the necessary signatures – a process that can take up to 8 months. We need to rethink the way the sector works and explore how technology can ensure that our world-wide confederation of partners will receive money in a fast and transparent way to support inclusive democracy, social rights and gender equality.

About

Vestas is changing how the world harnesses and produces energy. By connecting experience with innovation, and proven technology with the latest thinking, we create renewable energy solutions that are more productive and competitive.

Using blockchain technology for advancing sustainable renewable energy production

 Raising concerns about the negative impact of climatic changes have fuelled an increased focus on consuming renewable energy.

How can blockchain technologies be used to accelerate the transition from fossil fuels to renewables? Could the technology help in creating new energy markets?

One of the challenges related to the renewable energy market is guaranteeing the origin of the produced power. How can the traceability of renewable production be improved by using blockchain?
