Hackathon for a better city

March 20-28, 2020

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 March 20th followed by a hackathon on Friday 27th & Saturday 28th March, 2020 at Impact Hub Viadukt, Bogen D.

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

Challenges

We gathered real needs of different departments of the City of Zurich that could be solved with LoRaWAN and civic tech.

There will be as well an open challenge: if you don’t feel like building any of the other challenges, you are free to combine all available elements to create innovative solutions for the city!
