welcome to the 1st online Czech-Israeli hackathon!
This 24-hour online event will focus on brainstorming, creating new ideas and developing technological solutions for two alarming issues.
sexual harassment in the academic environment
The topic brought up by the Czech side, represented by Konsent NGO, which has long been dedicated to solving the problem of sexual harassment.
violence against children
Topic brought by the Israeli side and represented by Azrieli College and Hadassah Academic College.
Let’s meet, let’s think and let’s develop solutions for two important problems that surround us. You can understand this as a gathering of people who care about mentioned issues and people who know how to tame technology. It will be intensive, creative and meaningful. Let’s prove that technology can do for humanity more than just wash our clothes, give us Netflix or concerns whether it would take over the world. Technology and innovations can help us solve deeply embedded socio-cultural problems that can affect each and every one of us.
We aim to set up mechanisms to prevent and solve sexual abuse and harassment in university settings. Our goal is to build a safe, intuitive and informative web platform for victims to address their issue.
Sexual harassment at universities is unfortunately a common issue that afflicts both Israeli and Czech academic environment. Sexual harassment is creating a hostile environment and affects both physical and mental health of students, their self-perception, and study productivity. This is exacerbated by victim-blaming and a frequent issue of victims facing consequences for reporting harassment instead of creating a solution and an appropriate penalty for the offender. About 40% of interviewed students experienced sexual harassment or abuse at university. This can lead to lower engagement with academia or dropping their studies altogether.
Join us in establishing relevant goals and implement solutions to prevent harm, create strong support systems and make recognizable tools, to combat this head on. It’s past time!Our children deserve to live without fear.
The issue of violence towards children, particularly sexual assault and attacks, are still a taboo topic. Unfortunately, it is not a new issue and it has been “swept under the rug” for generations. The statistics show, one in five children are victims of violence. It is past time that we as a society stand up and say “No” to these offenses, “No” to turning a blind eye and “No” to the lack of liability and accountability. This is a disease that needs to be eliminated and it starts today.
Do you want to be a part of the solution, create a better, safer and happier world? We are looking for teams, individuals, mentors and supporters.
Get your friends together, think of an idea or a solution to one of the issues. No worries, if you miss a technological specialist or idea maker, we can lend you some.
No team? No problem. You can be a part of the hackathon individually, you can join an existing team or create one on the spot.
Do you have the skills, knowledge and determination to support our teams? Great, we’d love that! You can also become a mentor!
