A 3-day hackathon that takes place in Barcelona and brings together creative and inquisitive minds to solve mobility problems occurring in the historic centers of the city. Young professionals from the fields of urbanism and computer and data sciences will be brought together in the same place for fun and an intense session of co-creation, hacking and collaboration. The difference from a typical hackathon is that the Citython requires the analysis of data to understand a problem and reach to a conclusion.

There are three specific challenges:

  • Comprehensive cities . Counting and measuring mobility modes in cities.
  • Accessible cities . Monitoring and improving accessibility.
  • Healthy cities . Improving the overall air quality in cities.

All three challenges are rewarded with 1500€ and an entrance for each member of the winning team to Smart City Expo, where the winners will present their solution on the Barcelona City Council stand.
