Code for Philly, SustHack 2015 Call for Proposals

Apps for Philly Sustainability 2015

    Thanks for participating!

    If you’re reading this it means you’re an expert in sustainability and passionate about making Philly a more holistically sustainable, more successful city. So much in fact that we at Code for Philly and our partners at Sustainability Nexus want to ask you for a proposal to run a workshop or session. The unconference and hackathon is a three-day event that looks at sustainability as a holistic ubiquity that not only affects ecological indices but also social, economic, political, and the general health of a city. All perspectives are welcome to bring their ideas and host a session or workshop to follow one of two tracks that structures the program-- "elevating” and “discovery”. Our goals are to: 1. bring diverse perspectives to tackle the complexity of issues in sustainability to share knowledge and resources 2. start a constructive dialogue on how we might advance sustainability in Philadelphia and improve our city as a whole 3. work collaboratively to make a proof-of-concept that can live on in the civic tech ecosystem 4. have fun and meet new people!

    Unconference Tracks

    Multiple sessions will run concurrently broken down by track. SustHack has two to choose from: Elevating: builds on areas of practice where Philadelphia is a leader in sustainability. Examples include open data, civic technology, green infrastructure, trails and parks, the arts, higher education, entrepreneurship and business resources, etc. Discovery: brings new, uncommon voices to the table to re-think standard definitions and approaches to sustainability (or areas related to sustainability where we can improve). Examples issues of poverty, crime and violence, the education system
