How to hack local community activation in cities in times of a lockdown? – Lessons from Križevci (Croatia)
Last month, the Mayor of Križevci challenged the citizens to imagine a sustainable future for the city after the Covid-19 crisis.
“I want us to imagine how the city of Križevci can be a part of Europe and the world where we aim to keep the temperature rise up to 1.5 degrees C, as opposed to a pre-crises lifestyle. Imagine:
- how the economy and entrepreneurship will look like, any new jobs, how the way we do business can change?
- how we have helped in this crisis the most vulnerable social groups and how we can do it better, faster and more efficiently in the future?
- how we used digital solutions to connect us all to solve this crisis? How can we continue to work together in good times, not only in bad times?”
The local organisation Green Energy Cooperative (ZEZ) and Terra Hub mobilised the community thanks to a 24h challenge/hackathon “Today for Tomorrow – Križevci Version 20.30.” and are ready to share and discuss with us how they did it, why and what came out of it!
