This hackathon is about developing the smartest sustainable solutions for our Tunisian municipalities. It is a great opportunity for who are interested on making their city smarter place to live.
We give participants resources and incentives to go out of their way to learn new things from each other and apply the skills they have. The participants will be in close contact with municipalities in order to develop smart applications that solve their specific problems in the following topics:
- Smart Governance
- Smart Health
- Smart Mobility
- Smart Energy
- Smart Waste
- Smart Food and Agriculture
By the end of the hackathon, we hope participants will have created cool new things and also become better problem solvers. We hope also that municipalities will use your developed applications.
