Funding Detail Description
The Air Quality Hackathon will bring together (20) teams, (3) participants per team, to brainstorm for two days and find practical solutions for improving air quality. The solutions will be shared and implemented to the extent possible during a follow-on campaign with school communities and NGO partners. Results of the implementation phase will be shared with government and civil society partners. A survey to measure the impact of the intervention program will be conducted after the project is over. The best results pre- and post-intervention will be documented and recognized in a final event culminating event. PAS Kolkata has previously hosted two hackathons, one on combatting wildlife trafficking, and another on women’s safety. Both hackathons were successful in eliciting solutions, but those solutions are yet to be tested in the real world. For this project, we have included follow-on activities that would include real-world testing and sharing for broader implementation.(Please refer to the full announcement available in related documents Tab)
