Contribute to Maribor as a future city of slow mobility! Together we will solve the climate challenge put forward by the Maribor Cycling Network. As part of this year's hackathon, we will search for solutions in a form of an innovative network of bicycle trails to shape the velo-city Maribor.
Maribor is one of the pioneers of the Climathon movement and the first city in Slovenia that hosts this important global event since 2016. It is the second largest city in Slovenia and the leading gravity centre of Podravje region and Eastern cohesion region of the country. City of Maribor is signatory of Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy, title holder of „Alpine town of the year“ and has the 2nd largest University in Slovenia. The city is developing itself from a once post-2nd world-war, industrial city into a dynamic, green, touristic-cultural and economic center of the northeastern Slovenia.
During the Climathon 2019 event our vision is to create the concept for the network of bicycle trails to shape Maribor as the the velo-city of the future. Join us on 25 October 2019 and contribute to the urban development towards sustainable and cyclist friendly Maribor, supporting the concept of slow mobility, such as cycling and walking.
