'Climathon', Budapest University Of Technology, 25 October
The European Institute of Innovation and Technologyʼs Climate Knowledge and Innovation Community will hold an event titled "Climathon", a hackathon focused on climate problems, in Budapest on Thursday.

Budapest is strongly committed to make its Danube riverbank areas more attractive, offering high quality services and living spaces for the citizens. However, the current situation is challenging because of a messy condition of some public spaces and heavy traffic. 

The Municipality of Budapest and the Budapest University of Technology and Economics has launched a project called Smart sustainable riverbank neighbourhoods in Budapest. The overall objective of the project is converting specific neighbourhoods of Budapest - riverbanks, bridgeheads - into smart and sustainable public spaces. 

During the event, college students, young entrepreneurs, and developers will try to find solutions to make the Danubeʼs banks more environmentally friendly, while keeping climate protectiom aspects in mind as well.

Participants of the 24-hour climate initiative will also seek answers to questions affecting Budapest residents and tourists alike.

Further information and registration is available at the eventʼs website.
