Are you interested in renewable energy, climate change and technology? Then the Boston Cleanweb Hackathon is for you! Do you know how to code like a pro or design a website? Do you have a plethora of knowledge about sustainability and energy efficiency to share? Are you a student or an established member of the Cleanweb community? All expertise are welcome to participate in the 5th Annual Boston Cleanweb Hackathon! We say the more diverse the better.  

Hosted by the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center in partnership with Greentown Labs, the Boston Cleanweb Hackathon is a weekend-long technology challenge. In teams, you will compete for cash prizes in an effort to create a user friendly web or app based platform that will help consumers and businesses use energy and natural resources more efficiently.

The competition takes place at LogMeIn in Boston’s innovative Seaport District. The event kicks off with a team formation mixer and challenge presentations on Friday, April 1st and then coding begins the morning on Saturday, April 2nd. Participants have two days to create an application that addresses energy, waste, water, transportation, food or other energy and sustainability issues. We wrap up on Sunday afternoon with pitches to a panel of six judges and awards ceremony. Lots of food and coffee will be provided.
