Do you have a background in software development, data manipulation, STEM, graphic design or as an invested user of our waterways? Do you believe we can develop our community into one that will take the necessary steps to make a healthy environment happen?
~~~~~~~ Announcing *RiverHack 1.0*, a hackathon bringing together citizens and waterway user communities with water scientists, environmental charities, the Environment Agency, local government and a mass of programmers, artists and data scientists, to together hear what the challenges to river health are, and to see what we can do about them. If the above speaks to you, please join us at Oxhack from Friday 14th for this hackathon celebrating our great British waterways, where we will seek to construct prediction and visualization tools to solve challenges, and to help support waterways health, now and for the next generation.
