The Institute of Planning and Development of the City of Prague, in collaboration with Participation Factory, hosted the inaugural Czech-Slovak participation hackathon. The primary objective of Parti.Hackathon is to connect professionals from the Czech Republic and Slovakia who are interested in participatory planning. 

The event aims to promote best practices, encourage the exchange of experiences, and provide a platform for participants to collaborate and learn from each other while addressing real-life challenges.

Throughout the two-day event, participants engage in intensive group work, with each group consisting of 3 to 5 members. They tackle one of the selected challenges curated by the organizing team in collaboration with experts specializing in the individual topics. Each challenge is accompanied by a detailed assignment outlining what the participants are expected to work on. The challenges are primarily centered around designing comprehensive participatory processes in various contexts.

For each challenge, an agenda expert, serving as the challenge guarantor, is present on-site. The guarantors provide expert guidance to the individual teams as they work on their respective challenges. They introduce the specifics of each challenge before the group work begins and are subsequently accessible to participants for expert consultations. We also provide participants with an insight into the functionality of civic tech tools through practical demonstrations and the opportunity to experiment with these tools via accessible demos.

The outcomes produced by the participants are showcased and displayed at the final exhibition, marking the conclusion of the event. The jury recognizes and awards the best and most innovative outputs, with a total of 3 teams receiving a „special award“ for their complex and innovative solutions.
