This summer, SNF Nostos by Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) invites you to be a part of the first SNF Nostos Hackathon!
Coder Hackathon: Humanizing Technology - Enhancing Our Humanity in the Digital Age
Are you concerned about the effects of the downside of technology on society? Do you feel that technology should be better designed? Do you feel under pressure in your work to drive growth at all costs?
Help society transform its relationship with technology so people live healthier, more fulfilling, and purposeful lives.
COVID-19 has made everyone more dependent on technology, which is proving problematic for individuals and society. Whilst technology has significant benefits, some aspects of technology are ‘downgrading’ us as humans - driving shorter attention spans; mental health decline; and extremism. Furthermore, this downgrading is happening at a time when the complexity of the critical problems we face – especially climate change - is rising sharply.
Humanizing Technology invites you work out how we can reshape technology to operate for the common good and strengthen our capacity to tackle our biggest global challenges.
