Ready to experience the most meaningful week of your life, yet?
Unleash Your Creativity
To Save Gigatons of CO2
3rd - 9th July 2022
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.
42hacks hopes that the solutions we will be building together might inspire them but we are not actively helping them change their minds.
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%
