HackCities: Urban Innovation


In recent years, the percentage of rural migration to urban areas has increased greatly to the point that the cities currently host more families in Latin America (83%). This rapid urban growth creates great challenges related to mobility, public infrastructure, public spending, and disaster risk management. These areas were posed in the project HackCities: Urban Innovation in March 2020, where developers, researchers, entrepreneurs, and students, received training and worked in multi-disciplinary teams for 80 hours to create tech solutions to solve social problems. During the following months, the winner team "Mikuna" worked tirelessly and got to implement their solution: a logistic system to distribute school feeding diary for +300K students in La Paz, Bolivia.
