The talk will introduce you to the idea of sustainable (circular, open and free) cities and explain why hacking seems to be the only viable technique to invent and create these cities. A quick theoretical introduction will be followed by a catalogue of examples for city hacks reaching from hacking urban furniture to hacking large scale infrastructures. Some hacks have been done and some are yet to do.
