On Thursday 25 and Friday 26 September LUSTlab and the Municipality of The Hague organize the first edition of WTHX, a crossover between a hackathon and a think-tank, at Strandpaviljoen Zuid in The Hague.
At WTHX, professionals from the worlds of peace, justice, and security come together with creatives, designers, and techies for two days of collaboration at the beach in Scheveningen. WTHX provides an informal and unique setting for these thinkers and makers to meet, where all participant contribute their personal perspectives and skills towards a shared vision on international challenges.
In small multidisciplinary teams, the 150 attendees will formulate questions and prototype potential solutions for tomorrow's issues. They will use the themes peace, justice, and security as their starting point. To boost inspiration, a parallel program of expert guest speakers will be running in the central room. Participants can join this conversation at any time and share their newly developed insights.
As the national cluster for security and innovation The Hague Security Delta is an official partner of WTHX. With its multidisciplinary approach and innovative character WTHX shares the same values as HSD and aims to create new collaborations and stimulate existing partnerships too.
Because of the limited capacity WTHX has to make a selection out of all applications, but will inform you about the outcome well in advance.
