What is Climathon?

More than ever, the power of innovation in cities must be leveraged to reinforce climate action and to create a zero-carbon world in communities on every continent. Therefore, our global community of change-makers is taking an active role in their local ecosystems by brainstorming solutions to real-world climate challenges.

Climathon is an international movement, orchestrated by EIT Climate-KIC, to engage cities and citizens in climate action! It lays the foundations for tangible projects, impact-driven start-ups and long-lasting conversations with decision-makers around city plans and policies. 

At the heart of our community are the Climathon local organisers who power the movement around the world. Policymakers, entrepreneurs, youth, business leaders, hackers, academics, students and professionals are invited to participate in this journey of co-creation, idea generation, and citizen engagement.

The next global Climathon campaign will take place on 28-30 October 2022 with an exciting mix of physical, digital and hybrid formats, plus Young Climathons aimed at youth networks and secondary schoolchildren.

How can you take part?

Climathons mission is to connect cities and citizens across the world. You can get involved by taking the lead and bring Climathon to your city. By organising a Climathon you will have the opportunity to raise local climate awareness, strengthen local eco-systems and inspire further climate action. 
You can also take your ideas to the next level by joining a local Climathon as a participant.
Last, but not least, you can support the growth of Climathon by partnering with us.
