Landskapslaget Hackathon 2019 – The future of urban living
22 creative students from 16 different countries gathered here at Landskapslaget AB office in Stockholm to discuss, imagine and create a scenario for future cities in 2030. All the participants were highly engaged in finding creative and sustainable concepts and guidelines to meet the challenges of our future cities. 6 teams worked with 3 topics. For each topic, there was an Idea Feeder (expert supervisor).
The topics and the Idea feeders
The future of Art and culture in 2030
The topic focused on the production and consumption of art, culture and digital innovations in the future cities. The participants were discussing which factors could help the future cities to measure the art, culture and digital innovations. Moreover, how the art, culture and digital innovation will bring together people and empower democracy.
