    We describe a simple algorithmic method of constructing Hamiltonian structures for nonlinear PDE. Our approach is based on the geometrical theory of nonlinear differential equations and is in a sense inverse to the well-known Magri scheme. As an illustrative example, we take the KdV equation and the Boussinesq equation. Further applications, including construction of previously unknown Hamiltonian structures, are in preparation.
