Designed to inspire and mobilize AngelHack’s global developer ecosystem, the Code 4 Coexistence challenge will ask developers to find technology solutions to build tolerance and foster understanding across cultures in order to prevent violent extremism. Developers may use any technology or platform, all we ask is that it focuses on inclusivity, peace and understanding and does not specifically target a group of individuals based on religion, gender, sexual orientation, or race.
We’re looking for solutions that can make a meaningful, immediate impact in your local community, and/or solutions that have the potential to scale across borders. This challenge is being presented at 25 cities in the global series.
