INSIGHT

 

There are so many problems around London - whether it's housing, air pollution or homelessness - and there are so many people who want to help solve them, but don't know how they can. 

 
 
 

THE IDEA

 

A one day hackathon that will bring together people with skills, organisations with expertise and leaders from across London to create solutions that address the problems London faces today.

This will include focusing on the key issues in the city and exploring existing initiatives that if expanded could have a big impact, as well as developing new and innovative solutions.
