There is a vast range of possible actions our community can take to stop the spread of COVID-19 – and help society better cope with the current situation. These inlcude both analog and digital initiatives. The initiative Hack the Crisis Berlin Edition is a platform for projects stemming from the Berlin community (and beyond), where individuals can introduce their ideas and build teams of interested people.The platform can be used to share ideas and projects or to see what challenges others have identified.
The team members behind the initiative try their best help users find others interested in working on the same topics, as well as resources to support the efforts. They are in direct contact with the public health authorities in Berlin as well as other experts.
Hack the Crisis Berlin platform gathers ideas from various areas, like:
Information and communication
Models, simulations and prognoses
Hardware (e.g., 3D printing, sensors, medical technology)
Education, culture and leisure
Economy and mobility
Hack the Crisis Berlin is also looking for more partners to this initiative – reach out to them at hackthecrisis(via)citylab-berlin.org. You can check out the Hack the Crisis Berlin website for more information, join the slack channel or visit the project platform.
The platform has been launched by CityLAB Berlin.
