The City Is Open Source is a project investigating hacking our cities to make them open and circular.
The project works a lot with city hacking as a form of street art. The goal is to find short-cuts to the circular city and make it possible to experience how live feels in it. The project documents a lot of hacks that are easy to reproduce locally and shares a lot of knowledge and resources on its website.
You can take some of the hacks and reproduce them locally and take the question, approach and methodology of the project to create your own hacks. Please share what you create here or with the project directly to enable others to reproduce your hacks, build on it ... The City Is Open Source wants to grow a catalogue.
