Why get involved with CityHack17?
In short – because you love this city and want to be part of making it one of the most livable places on the planet. CityHack16 was such a great success we’re back to do it all again for CityHack17!
Our theme for CityHack17 is ‘Get Moving’. If you have an idea to make Greater Brisbane an easier place to move around – a place where you have the option to use the transportation of your choice, with less congestion, more active transport, greener spaces, healthier lifestyles and more efficient movement of people and things. CityHack17 offers you access to like-minded individuals to collaborate with.
CityHack17 will bring together Brisbane’s most creative and innovative thinkers to cultivate solutions to some of our city’s most pressing movement challenges.
Over two days, you and your team will have the opportunity to bring your idea to life with the help of some of the most passionate and accomplished city-shaping minds.
