Hack for Sustainable Future

SCCN is proud to partner with MIT - World Peace University for initiating students to come up with the solutions to major environmental problems like high water and energy consumption, increasing carbon footprint rates, solar panel maintenance and battery issues of E-vehicles.

MIT is organising a hackathon - HACKMITWPU, a 12 hour hackathon with 40+ teams and over 400 problem statements for students towards providing solutions to the various sustainability and campus related problems.

Smart Campus Cloud Network is a global network of the education campuses of schools, colleges, institutes and universities, committed to make a tangible contribution to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

With 4 exciting problem statements proposed by SCCN, there are amazing opportunities open for the students who crack the problem statement and ace the contest.

Participants can choose any ONE problem from a set of four statements designed by SCCN. Following are the interesting problem statements :

1.Develop an integrated cloud dashboard for monitoring home consumption of energy and water.

2.Real time carbon footprint and water footprint calculator for home.

3.Robot for cleaning the solar panels over the roof.

4.Ways to increase the battery life of E-Vehicles.

Students who come up with effective solutions to one of these problem statements will be eligible for a package full of opportunities to work towards sustainability and environment. The team who wins, will get a chance to intern at TERRE Policy Center under the Smart Campus Cloud Network (SCCN) Project. They will be directed and trained to work on various ongoing projects in the company and will get a great amount of industry exposure. They will get to attend exclusive seminars on real time case studies and research papers to derive digital solutions for social challenges. Furthermore, the students will get to submit their personal work like blogs, articles, videos or any environment, climate change and sustainability related ideas to SCCN, which will eventually get featured on the official website of SCCN. Working under the guidance of Rajendra Shende, Chairman of TERRE Policy Center and Former Director of United Nations Environment Program, and the expert panel of SCCN, students will 'Be Smart by learning to be Sustainable.'
