Title of Challenge
How can we address Cork’s food and agricultural challenges in a sustainable and climate smart manner?
Description of city challenge
ONLINE REGISTRATION IS CLOSED NOW. IF YOU STILL LIKE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE 24H EVENT, PLEASE CONTACT US DIRECTLY ON CORK.CLIMATHON@GMAIL.COM

Cork is the food capital of Ireland with its reputation for fine food and drink. Cork also sits within the “Golden Vale”, an area of tremendous agricultural productivity in Ireland. Cork City is home to the English Market with its locally sourced food and international ingredients, there is an array of unique restaurants and eateries including vegetarian and vegan, and there are food initiatives such as Food Academy and farmer's markets with organic and local produce directly sourced from farmers. County Cork also has the highest (per county) amount of family run farms, 10% of the national total.

On the other hand, the agricultural sector in Ireland is responsible for 30% of total country GHG emissions while the EU average is 10%. The majority of these emissions come from cattle grazing. Hence, it is clear that savings in agriculture are crucial to achieve the GHG emissions targets beyond 2020. There is also a need to create a secure food system in Ireland since as much as half of country’s food bill comes from imported products.

In the Cork Climathon 24 hour challenge we will define together the key challenges of food and agriculture management in Cork. These could be food production, meat consumption, transport, food waste, water, organic farming, locally sources produce and food security. We will work with stakeholders across the food chain to identify key climate challenges for them and work on practical, innovative solutions that address both the climate change and food management issues in the city.

Our approach will be trans-disciplinary and anyone is welcome to register. Places are limited so please give us a much information as possible on your skills, interests in the area of climate change, and ideas when you register as applications will be assessed to ensure an appropriate mix of skills and backgrounds in the Climathon teams.
City Host Organization
Event is hosted by the Environmental Research Institute, UCC and Energy Cork in partnership with Ignite UCC, Blackstone LaunchPad UCC, Taste Cork, Cork City Council, MaREI (Marine Renewable Energy Ireland), LEO (Local Enterprise Office), Environmental Protection Agency and IERC (International Energy Research Centre)
