Update: new cities, old cities, solutions, event topics
Communication - how is it going
Ongoing tasks

Good to see new cities joining. We need everybody to go to the Campaign TO DOS (see Lars’ comment below) and get things moving.

4 Water Hackathon Project

The project has its own Activity place [PROJECT] Hack the Cape Town Water Crisis Hackathon All the information posted in other places has been transferred here and the topics archived.

@Gien is working on finalizing the program. He will ask Lars how to post on the main page the name of the project with a link to the forum for people to join it.

He and the other organizers hope to see a lot of projects getting funding for implementation.

We discussed pros and cons for two logistics options: working in separate groups on projects or have everybody work on one project at a time. We agreed that whatever option will be chosen, there should be no winner takes all competition and that the project teams should be as diverse as possible.

Ricardo will participate and get other universities engaged, as Bogota is at risk of running our of water in about a year from now . He will find participants in Sao Paolo, Brazil. He might organize a similar water hackathon during the June events.

5 Other

Gien talked about the Mozilla Foundation acceptance. If you have any updates, post them on its respective topic.

Ricardo seems to have a few ideas :slight_smile: and here is basically a to do list for tonights call I planned to go through and transform into activities with you:


Also @Gien might pick your brains a bit how to push the Cape Town water crisis hackathon.
