Registration is due April 9 for the inaugural Climate Hackathon on Saturday, April 16 from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. via Zoom.
Speakers will include Sharpsburg Mayor Brittany Reno and a representative from Duquesne Light. Students will create a video, presentation, infographic, etc. that will be due on DEVPOST by 11:59 p.m. the same day.
Students will join faculty and staff as teams to propose solutions to a challenge question: How can we increase the uptake by residents and local businesses of energy efficiency incentives offered by their utilities and/or municipality?
The mission of the Center for Sustainable Business is to maximize the value of investments in sustainable business strategies for all stakeholders. It consists of three broad programmatic areas: thought leadership, research, and education. In all three of these areas, the center uses its position as a leading academic institution to engage companies in the adoption of more sustainable business practices.
