Stemettes Sustainability Hack @ H&M

H&M and Stemettes invite you to a STEMtastic virtual hackathon to get creative and innovative with like-minded young people around the theme of accessibility online! 

 

What?

Stemettes Sustainability Hack @ H&M is an online two-day event that will tap into your creativity and equip you with the skills to imagine a better future, sustainable fashion is the goal.

You’ll work in teams with your peers to identify a transport sustainability related issue and design a product or business solution for it.

Some ideas to consider:

  • What will an sustainable fashion market look like in the next few years and the future?
  • Together with your peers, can you create an idea for an app that demonstrates how much water is used each time you buy a new garment?
  • Can you think of improvements to current production processes to make them more sustainable?
  • Are you able to present an idea that encourages people to become more mindful about making the world more sustainable for all?

Throughout the weekend, you’ll be able to interact with industry, academia and entrepreneurship role models and learn about STEAM through their knowledge and expertise. The role models will be there to inspire your approach to the ideas you will develop during the hack.

We will kick off the weekend together then work in smaller groups on some STEMtastic business and product ideas. We will take a break for lunch and finish the day off with a special Stemettes showcase on the 27th March, during which you will present your ideas to a panel of judges – we will be giving away some exciting prizes to the winning groups and goodie bags to all participants!
