Hack The Camp: Finalists announced

The finalist for the second part of “Hack the Camp” in Athens have been announced

We were inundated with great ideas and the selection panel had a hard time selecting the final ideas to go forward. The selected ideas are:

  • Autonomous Water Supply: A portable water supply system, which can provide better hygiene for those in camps.
  • Book On The Way: A bilingual children’s book, with a vivid illustration and a meaningful story about human values. Once printed, the copies will be distributed in refugee camps, where workshops will be held presenting the books in a motivating and active way.
  • Co-Producing The Camp:  Handbook (and E-Handbook); a set of design and planning tools for NGOs. This aims to promote and guide the collaboration of all active actors, by working together on the site plan as a common project.
  • Hopestarter:  Enable refugees receive direct aid, in cash, from anyone in the world using a mobile app.
  • INTERART: Use performing & fine arts, in order to establish non-verbal communication between individuals and groups with different cultural background.
  • Match & Teach Me For Integration: An e-Learning platform, based on Moodle, for the education of the refugees via their smartphones, which is also combined with an economic stimulation for business within the IT sector in Greece.
  • NativeNet: Mobile app with mapping of useful places and information for refugees and a language learning service.
  • Radio Transit: Mobile radio broadcast service for refugees.
  • Refergon: An online platform to provide refugees access to the workplace.
  • Refudence: A service to match refugees with empty spaces in Athens.

These ideas and their teams will go forward to the final stage at Impact Hub Athens between 2-4th December 2016, where the winners will receive support and funding to complete the projects.
