Nest Hackathon: develop innovative solutions for sustainable housing

Did you know that buildings and construction are responsible for 39% of global energy-related carbon dioxide emissions? In Finland, more than one million detached houses account for a quarter of total household emissions, making the carbon footprint of housing a major challenge for combatting climate change and promoting sustainability. 

Nest Hackathon is here to change the narrative. No matter if you are a student, in the early stages of your career or further along, this is the perfect opportunity to challenge yourself to develop concrete solutions for sustainable homes.

The hackathon is a weekend challenge competition that brings together professionals from various disciplines to develop innovative solutions for sustainable housing.
