The idea of the one day hackathon on 22 April in Stockholm is to share experiences and insights from Sweden and India in order to improve the quality of cities in terms of design and efficiency to develop greener cities in the future. 

The event is arranged by India Unlimited, an organisation created by the Indian Embassy in Sweden and Sanjoo Malhotra, Chief Executive Director of India Unlimited and an alumnus of Stockholm University’s Stockholm Business School.
