Hackathon 2023

April 15th, 2023

Welcome to Hack-o-Jims

The G20 is a forum for Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors to discuss global economic and financial issues, representing 85% of the global GDP, over 75% of global trade, and two-thirds of the world's population. India holds the G20 Presidency from December 2022 to November 2023, with a theme of "Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam" or "One Earth · One Family · One Future". The theme highlights environmentally sustainable and responsible choices, both at the individual and national levels, leading to globally transformative actions resulting in a cleaner, greener, and bluer future.

Jagannath International Management School is organizing a hackathon called "Hack-o-Jims" under the G20 banner, where students can showcase their technical solutions to problems related to the G20 summit theme. The event aims to provide a platform for individuals who are passionate about creating a significant impact by addressing the prevalent issues affecting the G20 countries.
