Local folks solving local problems

Think Globally, Hack Locally

Hack for Change is a national day of civic hacking that will take place across the nation in early June. The event brings together citizens, software developers, and entrepreneurs from all over the nation to collaboratively create, build, and invent new solutions using publicly-released data, code and technology to solve challenges relevant to our neighborhoods, our cities, our states and our country.

In 2014, thousands of people gathered at 123 events across the country to work on projects to make our communities better. Hack for Western Mass was one of those events, and we’re doing it again this year.

On the weekend of June 6th, and 7th, technologists, designers, community activists, and other folks from all over Western Mass will gather at UMass/Amherst’s Springfield Campus to tackle local challenges with technology. Join us!
