Challenges

The Hackathon is organised by the University of Vienna, together with the City of Vienna. Climate change imposes major challenges, especially for cities. The City of Vienna defines concrete goals and measures for the city’s climate package, this is where the Hackathon wants to pick up. Interdisciplinary teams will work on concepts for (participatory) digital solutions to current challenges faced by the City of Vienna on climate. Therefore on one hand challenges were framed that lead to a very specific outcome. On the other hand we present more open challenges, that raise issues, demanding creative solutions.

Background information can be found here:

The challenges concern the climate topics: climate-friendly neighborhoods, energy, circular economy and climate-appropriate behavior.
