More than 50 students pulled an all-nighter in Honduras earlier this year to think up technical solutions to gender-based violence in the country’s first ever ‘diplohack’.The event, held in the capital city of Tegucigalpa, was a collaboration between the Swedish and Dutch embassies in Central America, UNESCO, Plan Honduras and the National Autonomous University of Honduras.

How can technology prevent violence? Solving this puzzle lay at the heart of Diplohack: the first socially-oriented ‘hackathon’ ever held in Honduras. After 36 hours of tireless work, some outstanding ideas saw the light of day.
