This event has passed.

Hack the Planet is a virtual ideas competition for people from Commonwealth nations.

Join us on 14th October at 12:00 BST for the final live event for Hack the Planet 2021.

Earlier this year, the first ever Hack the Planet competition was launched with over 80 teams submitting entries looking at some of the biggest environmental challenges of our time.

Six months later, teams have participated in a comprehensive training programme, with nearly 30 training events, and had the opportunity to hone the final pitches for their ideas.

At this event, we will hear the final pitches from the six teams who have been shortlisted as finalists for the competition. The pitches will be judged by a panel of live expert judges, and the winners will be announced. We are also delighted to be joined by the Rt. Hon. Patricia Scotland Q.C., Secretary General of the Commonwealth, who will open the event and by Dr Asha de Vos who will provide a keynote address while the judges are deliberating.

Join us to find out who will be crowned the winner of Hack the Planet 2021!
