New Playgrounds is focusing on hacks, hackdays and hackathons as events that seek to develop new relationships and collaborations, whilst creating solutions and unravelling challenges. The aim of the toolkit is to make hack events more accessible, and to enable more people to benefit from what they have to offer. It examines some of the main types of hacks, what the benefits are for individuals and organisations taking part, the different approaches to engaging various communities and how to create the right environment.
