What is aquahacking?
AquaHacking is about putting sustainable governance and technological innovation to work for water.
Each edition of AquaHacking focuses on a specific waterway and consists of the following:
A 2-day summit on water-related issues
A challenge which takes place over the course of several weeks.
The AquaHacking summit brings together decision makers, field experts, researchers, not-for-profit organizations, citizens and key players who want to take action on the environment and protect our sources of freshwater.
The AquaHacking challenge brings together young digital designers, technology experts, and water experts in order to develop applications (web or mobile) to solve water-related issues.
Freshwater is a priceless asset that we benefit from every day. AquaHacking is an initiative of the de Gaspé Beaubien Foundation to pass on clean water sources to future generations.
