Humanitarian Innovation Hackathon 2022The world has just passed the 100 million refugee mark. Every day our news feeds are inundated with stories of wars and natural disasters. Today, more than ever, the world needs people focusing on humanitarian work and identifying how they can use their unique skills.

PTC has once again partnered with The Warren Centre to bring the fourth annual Professor Ron Johnston Humanitarian Innovation Awards in 2022. The awards program includes the very popular Humanitarian Innovation Hackathon, a three-day event where university students from around Australia come together to produce innovative solutions to some of the world’s most pressing problems.

The Humanitarian Innovation Hackathon is a weekend long program with specialist speakers, team interaction, facilitated mentoring, and exciting diversions that will see participants from across Australia coming together for a single cause. Having adapted during the challenges of COVID-19, this year, the Hackathon is being held in three physical locations across the Eastern Seaboard of Australia as well as entirely online.

The 2022 Hackathon will present undergraduate students with the opportunity to collaborate to create innovative solutions that could save lives and make a positive impact on people around the world. Like the previous two years, this year’s 2022 event will focus on a case study taken from the Pacific islands.
