WHAT IS EOVATION CITY & CLIMATE ABOUT?
The goal of this competition is to create a prototype with business potential that can be pitched in 7 minutes. This prototype should be focused on using satellite and climate data in services and products adapting cities to climate change.
Teams composed of 2-5 multidisciplinary participants will have 24 hours to try to find solutions how to make our cities cleaner, healthier, safer and more prosperous.

TOPICS FOR HACKING:
Climate change in city life
(light pollution, temperature map, smog, ecological footprint, etc.)
(smart traffic, smart urbanisms, life quality index, etc.)
(urban sprawl, vegetation diminution, health of greenery, etc.)
Create service or a support tool for a decision making process that will help cities to adapt to climate change
Determine life quality index (air quality, greenery, traffic density, etc.) compared to other cities, countries and average levels
Develop a game (e.g online, board game) that would bring attention to Earth observation
Develop an app that uses existing data to identify dangerous conditions for people to take part in everyday life (smog, acid rain, high CO2 levels, low oxygen levels, etc.)
Define health/quality state of big green areas in cities
Identify a method in which satellite data could help us to create the ideal place for recreation for the public insides and outside of the cities
Simplify identification of new sources of renewable energy (wind, solar, wave, etc.) with help of publicly available climate/ Earth observation data
SPECIAL CHALLENGE: HOW TO PREPARE BRNO FOR CLIMATE CHANGE – BRNO CUBESAT CHALLENGE:
The challenge is to design concept of Brno CubeSat that would be feasible and could help to improve the quality of life in Brno. There are no limits, let’s launch Brno into the orbit.
