Hackathon “Sustainable CHIO"

Organise the largest equestrian show in the world? We can do that! Making Germany’s largest sporting event fit for the future? Only with your help! We are looking for creative minds for the CHIO Aachen Hackathon 2.0, which is taking place from November 10th-12th, 2022. Genuine application opportunities and significant prize-money await the best ideas.

The CHIO Aachen is an international live event, which we stage together with strong partners. 350,000 visitors attend the most famous equestrian site in the world every year. The CHIO Aachen is not “only” world-class equestrian sport, it also symbolises a fantastic atmosphere, lifestyle and it is an top international event.

The Albert-Vahle Arena, where the vaulting competitions are held at the CHIO Aachen, was turned into a stylish lounge and think tank for the first time in October 2021. A brainstorming took place for three days, at the end of which the teams pitched incredibly innovative ideas for the digital further development of the CHIO Aachen. Now, we and the “digitalHUB Aachen” are looking forward to the Hackathon 2.0!

The theme – “Sustainable CHIO"

Climate and environment protection as well as a fair social togetherness are extremely important for us. We endeavour to handle resources sparingly, reduce the environmental impact of our actions, save energy and act as sustainably and socially responsibly as possible. Our aim is to stage the CHIO Aachen as a “green event”. In order to achieve this goal, we are constantly on the lookout for new ideas. We are looking for you!

You develop new concepts and put them into practice in spontaneously established teams over the course of three days and two nights. Find solutions for establishing a “sustainable CHIO”. How can the CHIO Aachen become greener? How can resources be saved? How can we move forwards on the subject of themes like inclusion and accessibility? Which innovative techniques can we rely on here? Together with our partners we are eager to learn about your projects.

Special highlight: We invite all participants to visit the CHIO Aachen on June 29. Experience the biggest horse show in the world live!

Participation is free of charge!
