A group of intelligent and creative minds will spend 24 hours together in Strijp-S. All with perhaps the idea of how to develop the area. The 24-hour hackathon, which starts at 19.00 on Thursday, should be an initiative of the future.
Who takes control of Strijp-S once everything is structurally ready? Who decides on the design of public spaces and dealing with social issues in the area? And can the area maintain the energy and flow of this innovative time?
These are the questions that could and should be answered within 24 hours. These answers, according to the city hall, are what developers and residents need for the promise of making a new and vibrant centre.
There are five themes that will be discussed, with each theme lasting for four hours. There will also be a one hour break between each one. The five themes are nature, living, work, health, and integration.
