Our goal is to make Bratislava better

The vision of the city of Bratislava is to be a resilient and sustainable city that provides its residents with a pleasant place to live. As part of the Climathon challenge, the city is trying to improve the efficient functioning of the city's infrastructure and create services that support the city's climate resilience. Innovative solutions are based on live city data and valuable data from partners, which can only be accessed during the Climathon event.
