The mission of Hacks 4 Humanity is to create technology solutions and initiatives, that will contribute to the social good and address the needs of humanity using the 7 principles of ASU Project Humanities “Humanity 101” movement.
Together, the 7 Principles of the “Humanity 101” curriculum creates an opportunity to be reconnected with our humanity, using compelling values and technology as a foundation. Hackers will develop cutting-edge technology solutions that will solve complex challenges and allow them to engage and innovate in the following seven areas:
FORGIVENESS: What can be created that will allow us to practice and demonstrate forgiveness culturally and personally?
RESPECT: How can we learn to work with and/or engage and help others?
KINDNESS: What can we build to promote and encourage random or intentional acts of kindness?
INTEGRITY: How can we build a platform, community or initiative that maintains integrity? Data privacy?
EMPATHY: How can we reconnect with humanity and empathize with the challenges facing others?
SELF REFLECTION: Can we explore technology that allows us to dig deeper into ourselves and therefore create personal change?
COMPASSION: Can we see the world and others differently? What can we build to address the issues affecting humanity?
