Organise a Climathon

Anyone with the drive to raise climate awareness and bring their city and citizens together can be a Climathon local organiser. It's an extraordinary experience and we are here to support you with our proven methodology!


Local organisers independently planned and run their city Climathons. You decide the date, duration (12-72 hours) and challenge(s) of your Climathon. 


Choose a format for your ideathon: physical, digital or hydrid event. Young Climathon is also available for youth networks and secondary schoolchildren.  


The next global Climathon campaign is 28-30 October 2022. APPLY HERE to "be the change" in your city!
