History of hacc
“Hackers Against Climate Change" originated as a series of self-organized sessions at 35c3. In the aftermath members of those sessions started spin offs as mentioned above and local chapters in Siegen, Munich and on the Canary Islands.
The local chapter in Siegen initiated the first hacc sessions at 35c3 and afterwards was mainly involved in local activities.
The local chapter CHT hackbase cohosted the 35c3 sessions, hosted the session at 36c3 and cohosted the divoc r2r sessions.
Inspired by the activities in Siegen, the Munich chapter started their bi-weekly meetings in May 2019. With the approval to use the name by the initiator of the first sessions on May 13th 2020 we eventually founded the German non-profit organization "hackers against climate change e.V." on December 9th 2020. Two members of us were part of the 35c3 sessions. Since then we were active at the CCCamp 2019, 36c3, rC3 and divoc r2r.
Unfortunately conflicts led to a split between the local chapter Munich and CHT hackbase in July 2021.
