Pollution is one of the United Nations Global Challenges. Pollution may cause disease, allergies, and harm humans, animals, food crop and the environment. Rhode Island’s next generation is stepping up to discover innovative solutions to reduce local and global causes of Pollution.

Hack for Global Good is a powerful opportunity to engage young, motivated individuals to assess and address real, global environmental challenges. Equal parts science project, policy development, and business proposal, the Hack provides participants with an intensive team-building opportunity to collaborate on creative, inspirational solutions with real potential to benefit humanity.”
