Techfugees France Hackathon: Refugees & Sport #Paris2024

Techfugees France is organising a hackathon this weekend (30th June / 1 and 2nd of July) to create digital tools for refugees with one question in mind:

How to use the firepower of technology to make sport accessible to refugees, involve them in the preparation of the Olympic and Paralympic Games while reinforcing a long-term national agenda for integration and social cohesion of refugees in France?

  • Challenge 1: Promote the practice of sport and the registration at clubs
