Want to learn even more about using technology to advance human rights and protect the rainforest? Apply to be a Hack the Rainforest Fellow!

Digital Democracy is organizing a series of related hackathons and code sprints around the United States before and after this event in Guyana. We’re looking for up to two outstanding fellows who can help. In exchange, we’ll arrange for you to attend some of these events, cover the full cost of your trip to Guyana, and offer a small stipend.

Our ideal fellows will:

  • Be able to listen and communicate effectively with both technical and smart but non-technical people.

  • Be able to attend, support, and participate in weekend hackathons and code sprints in the United States. The exact form of participation depends on skills, interests, and experience, but we’re looking for people that can lead discussions, recruit participants, coordinate with vendors and more. Tell us what special skills you’re excited to share.

  • Be able to play a supporting role at the Guyana Hackathon. This could include making reservations, taking notes, transporting materials, and more. Really, we just need fellows that are flexible and game.

  • Have some experience attending or organizing hackathons, code sprints, or other large-ish collaborative events.

  • Want to learn about indigenous land rights and mapping.

  • At least one fellow will live in the United States.
