WHY SO FEW PEOPLE ARE ACTIVELY SOLVING THE CLIMATE CRISIS?

Why don't more people work in solving the climate crisis? Not knowing how to contribute. Not wanting to risk job, salary, or career opportunities. Not having the time besides a job, family, and other activities. With 42hacks, we create a fun and risk-free trial week.

1/3
Not concerned

42hacks hopes that the solutions we will be building together might inspire them but  we are  not actively helping them change their minds. 

2/3
Concerned

If you are concerned but just don't know how to contribute to solving the crisis then we are here to support you  to create solutions. 

Less than 0.1%
working

We want to 10x the amount of people working on new solutions. Out of golden cages and silos, joining one  million like-minded people in the biggest hack ever.

Why 42hacks?

We accelerate real change for climate through untapped human potential. We organize collective hackathons around selected clusters (e.g. railways) - as well as the funding and support for ultimately 420 teams to execute on the most promising prototypes within clusters.
