What does Urban Hackathon stand for?
It’s a 24 hour competition between the teams that include leading architects, designers, IT specialists, engineers and urbanists. They synchronize their skills to create a pilot project for Ukrainian cities that will solve actual issues, requested by the government.
The winners will be able to implement their projects in real life with the support of the government and acceleration program created by Синхро Простір and Платформа міських інновацій/City Innovation Platform.
Got another job but still want to improve your city? Make sure to come and dive into the latest news and technologies in urban development, participate in expert workshops, meet potential partners and clients. It’s your chance to see the way ideas are created and transformed within 24 hours.
We’re hosting the urban Hackathon in Ukraine for the third time in a row and each time we have more and more people who are willing to improve Ukrainian cities.
