Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) struck the Philippines on November 8, 2013 with such force leaving a trail of destruction and loss of human life in its wake. An estimated 10,000 people are feared dead with millions more displaced desperately lacking access to basic shelter, electricity, medicine, food and water.
We're calling all hackers, designers, and sstrategists to join us in envisioning and building digital tools to make sense of all the information coming out of the Philippines. We're dreaming up digital tools to help individuals and communities across the Philippines all around the world find credible agency and NGO information faster, to develop and co-create comprehensive lists of srurvivors o r missing loved ones, while enabling local citizens on the ground to report structural damage throughout their communities.
These are only a handful of ideas and would love to hear more from you and our community of experts.
Hackathon participants are encouraged to work in teams of 3 or 4. We also encourage all to continue developing projects post Hackathon. We're looking for coders, strategists and UI/UX designers to participate
