Social Hackathon aims to equip students with skills to fully participate in the digital education, but also with pedagogical skills to make connections with local communities and sensitize students towards on digital inclusion and digital empowerment of underprivileged and underrepresented community members. Students will work online in multidisciplinary teams to participate in the online social hackathon where each team will have to select a single community need and address it during the event in a form of e-service-learning project. The selected needs may vary in many ways, not only in regard to the country or university, but also in regard to digital skills needed to complete these tasks (from digital storytelling to use of emerging technologies).

Social Hackathon will provide an opportunity to all participating students to work closely on selecting real social challenges and plan their transnational cross curricular e-service-learning projects in sustainable and ecologically responsible ways, addressing inclusion and diversity, and gradually moving from pilots to full-fledged e-service-learning projects.
