Seizmic Hackathon

4th SEIZ­MIC Hacka­thon "Re-thin­king Food Sys­tems in the Anthro­po­ce­ne" | Octo­ber 2024

Under the Erasmus+ BIP program, the 4th Seizmic Hackathon has been organized by the University of Naples Federico II, in partnership with the Copenhagen Business School, the University of Iceland, the University Rovira i Virgili and the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. 

Anthropogenic climate change, species extinction and other environmental factors related to the Anthropocene condition will radically alter the conditions of food production, distribution and consumption in the coming decades.
In the meantime, the food economy is changing: there is the emergence of a new generation of highly skilled 'neo-ruralists', who are introducing new models of entrepreneurship and management; digital technologies - from drones and precision agriculture to e-commerce and delivery apps - are decisively transforming food production and distribution; at the same time, however, there is also a rediscovery of traditional foods and production techniques, with their specific tastes and aesthetics.
Participants will be asked to rethink the food economy of Naples and its region, also based on these recent developments. Organised in groups according to criteria of interdisciplinarity, they will develop systemic project proposals capable of guaranteeing ecological resilience and social equity, but also economic and organisational feasibility.

The workshop, already at its 4th edition, is one of the most consolidated training initiatives in the WP3 “Social Entrepreneurship" of the Aurora University Alliance.
