#Net_Hack Challenge_Iceland was organised by The Centre for Sustainable Design ® (CfSD) at Reykjavik School of Visual Arts on 18th July 2017, supported by Innovation Center Iceland, Reykjavik School of Visual Arts School of Visual Arts (RSVA) and Global Ghost Gear Initiative (GGGI).  The innovation workshop incorporated a series of creative, fun and innovative processes based on Professor Martin Charter’s unique GreenThink process. Teams worked throughout the day to develop solutions to a series of challenges set by external experts. At the end of the day, groups presented their concepts to an expert judging panel who gave their professional feedback.


Challenges chosen by the design teams were put forward by a series of expert challengers and a series of solutions were created and produced by the Innovation Teams. The Concepts were developed as a series of early stage prototypes and six have now been open-sourced for co-design and co-development with the global innovation and design community.
