The applications and services that will be created should lead to fresh and innovative approaches for challenges of Sustainable Urban Development.
The Challenges of the Hackathon were created based on pre-set directions and include the following:
◘ Green spaces in the city (e.g. inefficient/insufficient irrigation system in the city, existing green landscape mapping and data-driven recommendations, vertical and roof gardening, urban forestry, etc.)
◘ Air pollution
◘ Water pollution (e.g. data or monitoring system of river pollution, etc.)
◘ Smart traffic/transport management and green transport promotion (e.g. new parking model both for bicycles and cars, biking, city tours etc.)
◘ Municipal solid waste management
◘ Urban agriculture (e.g. vertical farming in the city, etc.)
The Goal of the Hackathon is that the participants are going to develop a working prototype of a product by Sunday morning and pitch them in front of the jury.
We invite everyone to participate regardless of experience or age, with various roles:
– Visionary entrepreneurs and project managers
– Graphic Designers & UX gurus

The diverse groups of mentors will be there to support you along the way and work with the teams throughout the whole weekend. They are coming from different background and have experience of working in the best companies. Moreover, this is a challenge also for field experts and environmentalists, who are welcome to bring their ideas and see how far it will be possible to take them in 24 hours.
