This was the Humanitarian Action Challenge!
The Hague Humanity Hub, in cooperation with ImpactCity and HumanityX (Centre for Innovation, Leiden University), challenged the general public to take part in the Humanitarian Action Challenge. The Challenge aimed to stimulate cooperation between business (including start-ups) and NGOs in order to develop innovative technological solutions for peace, justice and humanitarian action.
