What‘s the Climathon?
Your local contribution towards a better climate!
The Climathon is a worldwide 24-hour climate hackathon. In more than 100 cities on six continents, entrepreneurs, students, schoolchildren, programmers and policy-makers come together to work on new, creative solutions to local climate change challenges. The Climathon is your chance to develop local solutions in an innovation process for one of the most urgent problems of our time. So far, we have supported cities such as Zurich, Berlin, Karlsruhe, Essen and Frankfurt am Main in implementing the Climathon locally with other partners.
For the next generation: the “Young Climathon”
The Young Climathon is a programme designed for 12 – 18 year-olds to develop innovative solutions to climate-related problems in their local surroundings. Using an innovation-driven process and creative methodologies, the young participants gather inputs from experts, coaches and professionals to support their project or business ideas. They then pitch their solutions at the end of the 1-day event. The teaching staff also benefit from preparation workshops run by myclimate and other EIT Climate-KIC partners.
