THE HYDERABAD URBAN HACKATHON


The idea of Hackathon is to create an atmosphere of friendly competition and collaboration across various institutions and verticals. It can also be useful in generating practical solutions to very challenging problems. However, prototypes developed at Hackathon are nascent and thus need further nurturing and incubation. In view of this, the Government of Telangana is encouraging incubation of successful ideas at Hackathon into a full fledged venture.

This also provides a platform for policy makers, programmers and management students to work together for innovation and creation of value towards solving social and urban problems.

THE CONFERENCE

Metropolis, World Association of the Major Metropolises, is the leading international organisation that gathers cities and metropolitan regions with more than a million inhabitants.

Created in 1985, the Metropolis Association is represented by more than 130 members from across the world and operates as an international forum for exploring issues and concerns common to all big cities and metropolitan regions. Metropolis also manages the Metropolitan Section of United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG).

The City of Hyderabad, host city of the 11th World Congress of METROPOLIS, presents the virtues of a democratic city – A City for All. It’s rich culture, tradition, social equity, economic prosperity and demographic dividend makes it a reference among the future cities.
 

The vast experience, learning and challenges of the host city and urban India provides an excellent opportunity for the 11th World Congress of METROPOLIS to gather, engage, debate and share the global dialogue on urbanisation with stakeholders of the cities around the world.
