#peacehack is back at the Build Peace 2017 Conference!


#peacehack is an initiative of International Alert that brings peace practitioners, designers and developers together to develop new ideas and prototype solutions used to help build peace.

This year we are inviting participants from the conference to come and present their problems on the theme so hackers will be able to dive into creating real tech solutions straight away.

Do you have what it takes to develop a solution from idea to working prototype in 36 hours? Can you ensure the design considers working in a fragile country? Are you able to ensure the UX is accessible for all? Can you speak the language of peace and tech?

If so, please complete our sign-up form and apply to be part of our team for #peacehack at Build Peace 2017, where you bring the skills and we’ll provide the fuel!

Developers and designers will also have some access to the main Build Peace conference, and can sit in sessions that are of interest to them. Click here to view the main Build Peace programme.
