Green Hackathon for Smart and Sustainable Cities

Most welcome to our 24 hour Green Hackathon on February 12-13 2016 in Stockholm aiming to find green and sustainable solutions for urban development.

Our goal is to team up hackers with architects, environmental experts, statisticians, designers, makers, story tellers, interaction designers and other interested in finding green ICT-solutions for the future city. Everyone is welcome!

The hackathon will take place at the Sweco-office at Gjörwellsgatan 22 at Kungsholmen in Stockholm.

There is a maximum of 100 participants or 25 teams with maximum 5 members per team. If more people wants to participate the organizers will select the attendees to get a broad and diverse mix of competences. Note that the event is free, but that we will charge you 700 SEK if you don´t show up without having a valid reason (for example sickness). You can cancel your registration until 5 days before the start of the event.

You are welcome to attend both if you already have at team or if you are looking for team members.

NOTE: We have now reached 100 participants and 20 on the waiting list. Therefore we have closed the registration.
