Unprecedented times call for new heroes
The impacts of climate change are all around us, coming even harder and faster than the models predicted. When global climate politics is stifling, it’s your turn to move. Climathon communities collaborate to raise climate awareness, disrupt the status-quo, and rethink the cities we live in and the future we want as citizens.
What is Climathon?
Climathon is a city-based programme that offers a clear pathway to action and interaction - an opportunity for cities and citizens to co-create local ideas to shared climate challenges. At the core of the programme is an ideathon powered by local organisers; the people who know their cities and climate challenges the best.
How can I take part?
There are three different ways you can take part in the programme. You can take your ideas to the next level by finding your local Climathon and becoming a participant. If you want to arrange a Climathon in your community, you can take the lead and bring the programme to your city by becoming a local organiser. Last, but definitely not least, you can partner with us or sponsor us and help us to grow our movement globally.
Where can I join in?
In 2019, 145 cities all over the world held Climathons. If you’re open to meeting people, building friendships, collaborating and creating ideas that could tackle climate change in your community, find out if a Climathon is running in your city.
