DigiEduHack is here again: prepare your challenge or apply as a participant!

DigiEduHack is an EU initiative that aims to foster grassroots innovation, collaboration and creativity and to drive positive change in digital education. Everyone is welcome to participate and contribute to the future of digital education.

This initiative opens up a world of exciting opportunities for learning, collaboration and innovation.

The Digital Education Hackathon (DigiEduHack), a major series of digital education hackathons, comes back for a forth edition on 11-16 November 2023!

The main topic of this edition is 'People in the centre of digital education'. Putting people at the core of digital education means creating a personalised and meaningful experience for all. It's about establishing a sense of care, belonging, empowerment and empathy, in a context where technology plays an increasingly prominent role in the learning process.

Whether in Europe or elsewhere around the globe, participants come together to create solutions to diverse digital education-related challenges. The initiative continues under the Digital Education Action Plan 2021-2027, with a long-term goal to support grassroots innovation and contribute to the objectives of the European Digital Education Hub.

A recent study conducted in Germany shows that customers in a student canteen choose low-emission meals when presented with the carbon footprint of meals. This effect was strongest when the information was color-coded in a traffic-light scheme and translated into environmental costs in euros.
