Cool Budapest- rethinking resilient riverbanks

Rethinking the riverbanks of Danube in Budapest to make the city more resilient and sustainable!

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. In the framework of this project we’ve identified the key challenges and now we are looking for smart, sustainable and citizen-friendly solutions. Do you have a smart idea for addressing these urban challenges? Join the Climathon and rethink together the resilient riverbanks of the Danube! 

Challenges

Challenges are strongly connected to both climate change impacts and riverbanks of Budapest. Mitigation, adaptation and awareness raising challenges can also be selected in rethinking the physical and functional features of the riverbanks.

How could you restructure existing riverbanks in Budapest in order to improve their attractiveness?

The main aim of this challenge is to find adaptation and awareness raising solutions in retrofitting riverbanks in Budapest. Outcomes of the challenge should be climate-oriented with a strong emphasis on raising citizens' awareness regarding climate change impacts.
