Design-sprints for environmental justice

A hackathon is a design sprint event where participants come together for an intensive collaboration. The goal of a hackathon is to complete a project or plan by the end of the event. The TGP Agile Capstone Hackathon is a two day, 48-hour, hackathon for teams to complete their innovation project to "hack" solutions focused on environmental justice.
