Greenpeace Hackathon notes

28-30. November 2014

Goal: Save the Oceans

Sub-goal: Help someone in our community by exposing hidden information

Ideas

Doable suggestions

  • Crowdsourcing // mass participation
    • make a survey/poll to request extra information from the crowds: about "monster boats"?
  • Education
    • Greenpeace could inform consumer association (consumentenbond, voedingscentrum) about "good" fish coming from these MSC certified fisheries http://www.voedingscentrum.nl/encyclopedie/msc.aspx
    • Greenpeace could mobilize their millions of supporters to write to these consumer associations -- or to boycott buying "dirty" fish...
  • Create a graph/diagram of all the companies that PP owns (like "open oil" graph!), and their contracts / customers...
  • FOIA (requests)
    • Request that IMDEA publishes where do they get the funding from
    • Ask for court documents (if there was a court-case)
  • Ask for (more) whistleblowers to come out from those companies!! (MSC, PP, BLE, NVWA, ships...)

Crazy Ideas

  • "improve" the photo gallery: http://www.vesselfinder.com/vessels/uploadphoto/235010670
  • invite friends to post on the social media pages of these companies
  • ddos the harbor website as a "digital sit-in"
  • invite activists to sign the petition to MSC - to request revocation of MSC certificate
  • become a shareholder in one of those companies (if possible) and request financial reports
  • explore the use of "pingers"

What can I do

  • Show the Zembla documentary at the movie evenings (Citizen Kino, hackerspace...)
  • Give a presentation at 31c3, and ask German hackers to help out with BLE!

Ask Investigative Journalists

...ask other investigative journalists to take an interest in tis story!
