Celebrating the Climathon community

Climathon Awards is the annual celebration of citizens, cities, and Climathon organisers that joined the year-long programme to raise awareness, collaborate and rethink the future of our cities. 
This edition of the Awards marks the 5-year anniversary of Climathon, uniting thousands of citizens and solutions across 6 continents that bring to life inspiring ideas and solutions for the future we want as citizens.
