why?
Problems with waste, environmental pollution and resources scarcity are gaining a hazardous scale. Those can be resolved only when implementing sustainable innovations. New materials, energy sources and business models are nowadays relevant not only for Ukraine, but for the whole world.

ReThink follows Circular Economy development trend in the West, but also sees how many creative enthusiasts Ukraine has. That’s why we’re organizing first hackathon in Ukraine on this theme. We’re willing to work out more ideas and solutions, and also to unite creative entrepreneurs, proactive students and responsible businesses into an ecosystem of caring ones for both, the business and environment.
