How will mobility in cities work in the future? How green will our cities be? How can the city of the future be supplied with energy? Such complex questions need interdisciplinary answers. At hackathons and city labs interested citizens are encouraged to become into city developers.
In labs hobby and professional researchers will try out new approaches and hacks to solve their cities’ problems. In Cologne and Berlin the participants can solder, code or design. It is up to them whether they want to create an app, a website, a machine or a completely analogue object.
Researchers will work together with citizens, municipalities and start-ups to develop smart solutions to societal challenges. Whether it is climate change, energy supply, mobility or supporting communities: the answers to these challenges must be realized locally.
