How can data be used in an innovative way to create smart cities?

How can we by tech help our society and its inhabitants to develop in a sustainable way? If these are questions that you find interesting, this is the hackathon for you!

No special skills are required, for example, programming. We would like you to be a innovative team player with an interest in creating smart cities in a sustainable way.

Future Position X is a Non-profit Network Organization founded in 2006 with a focus on health and well-being in the smart, sustainable, viable city and community. We are partnering with Hack for Sweden to host Hack for Gävle, a 24 hour hackathon. We are inviting curious minds from all over Sweden to gather with us to explore  our theme,  Smart Cities!

What exactly is a Smart City? 

We want to know how you think a Smart City looks! Does the future lie in replacing streetlamps with bio-luminescent algae? Creating more stylish solar panels and installing them on to the roof of every building in Sweden!? Local garden and greenhouse initiatives? Bring your most creative and wild ideas as we set out to imagine what solutions drive us into the future.

And of course, the hackathon is free of charge and open for everyone. Food as well as sleeping arrangements will be provided for free for all participants!
