What does Ljubljana look like in 2030?


Imagine you just landed in Ljubljana’s central Prešernov trg square on 25 April 2030. You have visited the city at the big TEN-T event in 2018 where innovative companies and entrepreneurs presented their ideas on the “Future of Mobility”. Some of their ideas came to life and some of them didn’t. The city of Ljubljana itself invested in achieving goals like reducing greenhouse gas emissions, encouraging people to walk and cycle more, zero road accidents, and increasing the use of public transport.

In 2018 you didn’t know what kind of technology would prove to be successful, but you did know that changes were to come. You were able to look one step beyond the ideas presented and came up with new ideas on top of that – taking into account the social, economic and transport needs of Ljubljana. Your business plan convinced investors to finance your project. City leaders were inspired by you and incorporated your ideas in their strategies. As a result, the city of Ljubljana has made great progress in being a clean, sustainable city that attracts business in 2030.

Do you want to be the person in this story, standing there in Ljubljana’s central Prešernov trg square on 25 April 2030? Then the first step is to register as a participant for the hackathon.
