Call for Ideas: Wala Usik Challenge 2022: #HackThePackaging

Calling all puzzle solvers—do you have a big idea to help to take the waste out of packaging, and packaging out of waste? Enter the Wala Usik Challenge 2022: #HackThePackaging, a virtual hackathon organized by the Philippine Reef and Rainforest Conservation Foundation, Inc. (PRRCFI), to help solve the goal towards a circular economy. In the Philippines, the local phrase “Wala Usik” means “nothing is wasted.”

This hackathon is an initiative under the “Rethinking Plastics – Circular Economy Solutions to Marine Litter” project, co-funded by the European Union and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and implemented by GIZ and Expertise France.

In a circular economy, resources are used and managed in a more efficient and sustainable way through the principles of reduce, reuse, and recycle.

The event is free and open to anyone from the 7 countries in the Rethinking Plastics project: China, Indonesia, Japan, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Viet Nam. The hackathon will be accepting entries from 9 February to 9 March 2022.
