What is Hack for Södertälje?
A online event for you who want to contribute to Södertälje’s development towards "The inclusive, sustainable and connected Södertälje."
In concrete terms, this means that you participants are divided into teams that will work together for 24 hours to solve the challenges in the competition and then present their contribution to the jury.

What is the theme
The theme for Hack for Södertälje 2022 is 

"The inclusive, sustainable and connected Södertälje"

Who can join?
All! We welcome all participants. The more perspectives the better. There is no age limit.

We hope that you who live or work in Södertälje will want to join, but of course you who do not work or live in Södertälje or who have other perspectives to contribute are also welcome.

The inclusive, sustainable and connected Södertälje is about society in a larger context, not only Södertalje municipality, other municipalities in Sweden but even of course globally. Which means we happily se other municipality’s and organizations engaging in our Hackathon – we can make each other better …..

Development is a common process and this hackathon provides opportunities for new forms of interaction with different skills. Therefore, we also welcome you who, for example, are a supplier to Södertälje municipality or Science Park. You can contribute valuable knowledge and experience.

What do I need to know to join?
No special prior knowledge is required. The important thing is that you want to be involved. Hack for Södertälje is for you who want to develop your skills in problem solving, creativity and innovation and contribute to The inclusive, sustainable and connected Södertälje. With that said, since it's about working in groups with sustainable solutions for the future, you are welcome to be a curious team player with an interest in sustainability and digitalisation.

Is it only for hackers or developers?
No. Everyone is welcome and everyone has got good ideas that will take us forward. The more diverse group of participants the better!

I have no team, can I join anyway?
Of course, most people sign up without a team and are then assigned one.

What equipment do I need?
A computer! And creativity.
Pens and paper, post-it patches and wifi.

Do I need to be active all of the time?
It is entirely up to you and your team. But the best results usually comes if everyone is active as much as possible.
