Who the f*%# is 42hacks?

42hacks is a non-profit Cooperative registered in Switzerland with an internationally growing Climate Hacker Community aiming to close the gap between Climate Promises and Protests.

We are driven by real, entrepreneurial action to help mitigate the risks of Climate Change. 

Every Friday we run our popular Climate Hacks that are free and open to everybody.

What we stand for

We believe in the power of Collective Creativitiy, radically Open Innovation, and New Technologies to help mitigate the risks of Climate Change.

Also, we tend to be a bit nerdy. We are fans of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by author Douglas Adams and think that the number 42 is the answer to everything.

We want to «hack the Climate Crisis», mobilize citizens to unlock their creative potential and have a good answer when our (future) kids ask us
«hey, what did you do against Climate Change when you knew there was still time?»
