“Would you trade in your office for a four-story sphere surrounded by 40,000 plants? The Spheres are a result of innovative thinking about the character of a workplace and an extended conversation about what is typically missing from urban offices – a direct link to nature.

AWS and NVIDIA are hosting a hackathon where you can build your own solutions around helping the environment. Whether you are passionate about stopping deforestation, tackling climate change, or are also interested in bringing nature into urban environments, we want to see what you can do.

You bring the big ideas and we’ll provide the AI tools and powerful cloud infrastructure for you to build your vision.
