What happens when you bring together a group of people from over 12 countries together for three days with the task to create a communications campaign to show support for EU? They transform a hackathon into a creative talent show.

At #EUhack eleven teams worked hard, combining passion and activism, to engage people not to take all benefits from EU for granted. It was the first edition of a “communications hackathon” and it wouldn’t have been possible without the support of European Commission, Spiegel Online, Weischer.Media, German Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy and pwc. We highly appreciate the support from all our partners. 🙌

A BIG THANK YOU to our team of over 10 mentors, who dedicated their time to help out the participants in the most varied topics: activism, communications, European legislation and design. You made a great difference in this hackathon!

To all jury members: we know you didn’t have an easy task. To chose only three winning teams among so many great ideas required quite a lot of time and (passionate) discussions. We appreciate your support for (all) teams to keep going forward with their campaigns.
