Let's make the world a better place by hacking at Crapathon Helsinki!
When was the last time you spent a day without going to the toilet? 2.6 billion people on earth don't have toilets and need you to solve the issue!
This year's World Bank hackathon's theme is sanitation. Sanitation is not only about toilets but about clean water and health. Challenges are enormous, opportunities are incredible.
