ABOUT THE COMPETITION
Urbanization, globalization, climate change, demographic change are all public pressures on people's quality of life, safety and security. This has put many city authorities in a challenging position to tackle problems, relating to these topics. To address this, we have developed a series of hackathons spread over three months, to challenge our partners and developers to seek new ways to connect, get better insights to foster a better environment and develop a smarter and safer cities.
This event is brought to you by the NSW Government Smart Places Strategy, Oracle Corporation, Slack and Oracle Partner Network. Below are some examples to kickstart your ideation process!
