Next month Polish cities will be able to submit climate challenges and have the best programmers in the country develop innovative solutions to them. This will happen as part of the first “climathon” for cities (Klimaton dla Miast), organized by the Polish Development Fund and the Ministry of Development Funds and Regional Policy.
It will take place in the form of a 48-hour programming marathon, where the winners will get 30,000 PLN (around 6,500 EUR) and expert support.
“Through Climathon for Cities and the PFR for Cities program, we want to create a platform that connects the technological needs of local governments with people who have the appropriate knowledge and ideas. I encourage city authorities to report their climate challenges, as this is a good time to get the appropriate support in solving them.”, Paweł Borys, President of the Management Board of PFR commented on the occasion.
