The Hague Hacks Festival
The Hague Hacks Festival is a main ideation (idea creation) event of the year. We create a trans-disciplinary space where human rights defenders share their experiences and unpack human rights violations in their communities. At the Festival, we bring together tech experts, software developers, designers, engineers, etc., as well as H.R.D.s and diaspora members together. This plurality of perspectives enriches the problem-solving process and leads to innovative new tech ideas for human rights advocacy. We believe that these connections and ideas would never have occurred outside of our Festival Ideation sessions, and that is why our goal is to be that bridge between the worlds of peace and technology.<br />
This year’s theme for the Festival is Set Free: Tech to Empower Human Rights and Freedoms. We will be focusing on four challenges to human rights and freedoms: Political Participation (Nicaragua), Gender Inequality (Bangladesh), Peace Education (Netherlands, Northern Ireland, Turkey/Kurdistan, North Korea), Right to Expression and Association (Hong Kong), and Environment and Human Rights (Cambodia).<br />
All the workshops are facilitated by human rights defenders, tech experts, and community leaders. We highly recommend that you register for workshops in advance.
