The Greenhouse team
Hello, New Yorkers!
At IDEO, we want to make the world a more human-centered place to live, work, and play, and we especially love designing for our own city. To that end, we’re hosting our first ever NYC hackathon, in collaboration with our friends at NYC BigApps, to tackle one of our city’s biggest problems—waste.
How might we tackle the challenge of waste in our city with the best thinkers, makers, and storytellers out there?
“IDEO NY Hacks: Waste” will convene 50 selected participants to design against three specific waste-related challenges. Participants will work with IDEO mentors, topic experts from across the city, and a panel of expert judges to deliver their best, most innovative and effective waste solutions in 24 hours.
We welcome UXers, visual designers, developers, architects, environmentalists, storytellers, policy wonks, hardware hackers, foam-core masters, city employees, and anyone else passionate about creating a green and sustainable city to join us on July 11 and 12 at our offices in downtown NYC.

See you there!
