Climathon Donostia 2020 #WATER4FUTURE
Donostia-San Sebastian joins the change! Sign up now to create solutions to the challenges of water and climate change. It is time to act!
Climathon is a global event that every year simultaneously brings together cities from around the world to develop local solutions to urban climate challenges. This year it will take place from November 13th until 27th, and the city of Donostia-San Sebastian participates through a ideathon open to a diverse group of participants, ranging from policymakers to hackers, youth to academics, students to business leaders, that will come together to collaborate on forward-thinking ideas that tackle a glocal climate challenge.
Climathon Donostia-San Sebastian proposes for this year Water 4 Future: a process of reflection and generation of innovative ideas with the aim of making the city more flood-resilient, reducing water use and water contamination by 50% in 2030.
Participants will work in groups, developing practical skills for analysis, argumentation and collaboration to propose solutions to this major challenge. The working sessions of 2 hours were held on Fridays November 13th and 20th.
Upload your ideas in order to make water part of the solution. Ideas must be submitted on the Red block "Upload your Climathon idea" until Friday 27th at 12:00 p.m.
Pitching will be that same Friday 27th from 15 p.m. to 17 p.m.
Take part and join a global community of thousands who want to act now, and rethink the city we live in and the future we want as citizens.
