Reimagine Waste – Waste Hackathon event
Ready to hack for the nation?
It’s time to reimagine everything about waste.
Today’s hyper-developing India is stymied by the growing task of waste management, disposal and education. Government, industry and society are faced with the daunting challenge of rethinking their approach, systems and services associated with waste disposal. Where does the problem begin?
Fact is that the health risks are only increasing impacting everyone and everything. From little schoolchildren to adult waste workers, land to living. It’s time to start the clean up, bottom up.
To bring together disruptive thinkers, tinkerers and innovators to rethink, redesign and reimagine systems, services and constructs. It’s time to renew . And the movement starts with you.
Garbage doesn’t have to be a dirty thing.
We can achieve our goals:
- Reduce non-recyclable waste to < 20%
- Transform 80% of waste we produce into value
- Create opportunities for up-valuing of waste
- Create more scalable and equitable businesses
- Create a smarter and cleaner future for Indian cities
