Have you ever wondered how technologies can change our cities?

On the 17th of April, we’re coming back to Warsaw to talk about the role of technology in advancing the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. This time, together with industry experts, we’ll tackle the topic of Smart Cities – 11th Goal of Sustainable Cities and Communities.

Hacking Carrots brings a new perspective to solving social challenges on a mass scale. We show how programmers, UX and UI designers, product managers or testers can help create a better world.

If you’d like to engage in building ecological and citizen-friendly cities of the future or you’d like to meet IT specialists interested in the topic – this meetup is for us all to get to know each other 🦄 🌍

Remember that the meetup is also part of the preparation stage for the first Hacking Carrots hackathon!

Together with the Partners of the meeting PwC, Miasto Stołeczne Warszawa, HubHub we can’t wait to meet you!
