In the Czech Republic, it is getting harder and harder to find affordable housing. Living in safe, fair and decent housing is one of the fundamental human rights! Sadly, different groups of people are facing different kinds of problems and obstacles in the housing market.

Hackathon about affordable housing is an intensive and focused team activity where people with different capabilities and knowledge cooperate to solve problems or create projects regarding affordable housing in the Czech Republic.

Anyone can participate in the hackathon. We are looking for people with different life experience, who are interested in housing-related issues. The participants will divide in groups of 2 to 5 people and from Saturday morning to Sunday noon will be intensively working on real projects and products that aim to help ordinary people with their housing situation.


You can register on this link until 31st of October:
The event is open for everyone, regardless of age, experience, gender or social status. Anyone can register! Vegan food and accommodation are paid by the organizer.


On Friday, from 18:00 on, there will be a public panel discussion on affordable housing.
