Make Zürich

Civic Tech Hackathon for a better city


Hackathon for a better city

June 2-10, 2023

What is it?

We are bringing together the local maker community and the city administration to explore new solutions that improve life in the city with the help of open networks and civic tech.

When and where?

The challenges will be presented on June 2, 2023 followed by a hackathon on Friday & Saturday, June 9 - 10, 2023.

Make Zurich is a community event organized by Stadt Zürich and Open Network Infrastructure Association.

What you will find


Take the chance to learn new skills and technologies from mentors and peers!


Plenty of electronics, sensors and other hardware to play with!


We take care of you, provide healthy food and environment so you don’t to think about it! And of course, we have a safety concept.

Kids are cool

We offer a safe and fun environment for young makers (U18) who are accompanied by their parents. For kids 7 to 16 we offer a coding workshop by Logiscool.
