There will indeed! They're a secret for now though, just to keep you wondering..!
CANCELLED – Bath Climathon
It is with great regret that we are cancelling the Bath Climathon due to low numbers. Please accept our sincere apologies, we know this will be disappointing news – but we're sure it won't dampen your enthusiasm for making the world a more sustainable place to live!
15 and 16 November – CANCELLED
What's in it for me?
There’s a big problem with recycling electrical goods: poor data.
Imagine if you could help crack that?
You would dramatically improve people's understanding of product usage and longevitiy, accuracy of information about recycling and evidence to support its merits.
The Bath Climathon is an exciting opportunity to work alongside entrepreneurs, students, professionals and developers on an innovative, technological solution that uses apps and tracking data to improve the way we use and dispose of electrical items.
You'll be collaboratively racking brains to co-design a system that tracks electrical products from the point of manufacturing, through retail and consumption to recycling and reuse.
It's a great opportunity to use your skills and collaborate on an environmentally useful project. And we'll give you refreshments – and we'll be handing out prizes!
Recycling facilities in Bath are straining. Better information about electrical waste could take some of the pressure off and help improve the recycilng infrastructure.
When it comes to electrical waste, there's a disconnect between information about manufacturers, retailers and consumers and information captured at the point of recycling collection.
The Bath Climathon is a great opportunity to help improve important information about recycling in the area.
We are looking for different participants to join the Climathon. Sign up for your profile now. Hurry up we only have a limited amount of seats.
