On – line event has stared with the introducing workshops and words of motivation by representatives of Polish Ministry of Climate, Invest In Pomerania, Microsoft and Marek Kaminski the 24 hours work have started. Over 80 participants started to create prototypes of tools and applications aiming to improve nature condition.
Creativity and innovations were a must in this task. Groups have presented their work in front of the experts and partners. The jury decided to award them Świetliki for their application to encourage to behave more environmentally friendly by taking a part in gamification. App “to light up by example” (świecić przykładem / lead by example) helps to segregate waste, increases awareness of product composition and promotes green transportation.
