About the event:

Zagreb is happy to be on the Global Children’s Designathon map for four years in a row. We strongly believe in the power of individuals to shape a better world, especially the younger generations. We see GCD as a platform that gives them a voice and self-esteem, and equips them with skills and knowledge needed to thrive in the future. Experienced facilitators with backgrounds in design and maker education are a guarantee to get the best out of children’s ideas.

Plant salvation Initiative that solves the lack of land through a building-machine garden in which plants are grown (some kind of a large, mechanised, multi-story building for plants), and it runs on solar energy. Additionally, people are financially stimulated to plant and take care of the plants through a special mobile app.


A self-moving machine that is supposed to deal with the hunger problem. With the help of GPS, it collects unused food going from door to door, of both homes and restaurants, then separates the food that can be used, packs it, and takes it to the ones in need.

Underground field

This invention tackles the lack of land by growing plants under the ground surface level. Plants are irrigated using rainwater and absorb the energy that comes through solar panels installed above the ground.
