Rix Hackathon20

We are celebrating 20 years of Rix by hosting Hackathon20 at the Royal Docks Centre for Sustainability on Friday 12 July 2024.

Our ambition is to work with business leaders, heads of services from the public sector and our co-researchers (a community of research experts with a lived experience of a learning difficulty) to identify 20 challenges people face in the health and wellbeing sector.

This event is funded and supported by the Centre for Wellbeing Community and Inclusion (CWCI) at the University of East London.

The Rix hackathon promises to be a fun, inclusive and solution-focused interactive workshop, where people from different walks of life and experiences work together to share their ideas and experiences to solve problems. Whilst some attendees will have a technical or developer background, this is not a prerequisite of attendance. Creativity, ambition and resilience are the order of the day.

Rix believes that some of the biggest challenges people face can be overcome with solutions that are closer to home than we thought possible. By exploring these solutions we can all contribute to a more inclusive society, where people’s lives are transformed, and businesses and orgnaisations deliver better, more efficient services.

The event will take place in the Royal Docks Centre for Sustainability (RDCS), at the University of East London’s Docklands campus.

Date: Friday 12 July
Time: 10.30am to 4pm

Limited spaces available!
