Superheroes Wanted: Goodie Hack [HEALTH]

Use your superhero powers for good! Help us to create healthier neighborhoods!

People are tired of living in unhealthy neighborhoods. We need your help to change this.

Current Situation

Globally, nearly 25% of all deaths and disease burden can be attributed to environmental factors such as poor air and soil quality. And minorities face nearly 40 percent more exposure to toxic air pollution overall, according to a study conducted last year.

Our Future Is Bright With Your Help!

We can change this scenario by creating tech-enabled solutions that help people manage their waste better.

Through Goodie Ideation [HEALTH] the community developed seven big ideas that need prototypes built to bring these solutions to reality.

So, join a team at Goodie Hack [Health] to develop technology solutions to send  less trash to the landfill.

We are looking for:

  • Developers, designers and product managers to use their technical expertise to construct applications to help folks get items out of the landfill.

  • Community members to tell us about your 'hood so we know how to make an app that suits your community.

Teams will compete with the development of idea prototypes created at Goodie Ideation in April.

Register for a fun-filled weekend that will help create change in Charlotte’s underserved communities. Meals and tees included in registration. Stunning prizes given to teams for prototypes!

The event takes place from Friday, August 19 - Sunday, May 21.

Sponsored by The City of Charlotte and Goodie Nation
