Climathon Awards 2020
Take your Climathon idea to the next level!
Climathon Awards is the annual celebration of citizens, cities, and Climathon organisers that joined the year-long programme to raise awareness, collaborate and rethink the future of our cities.
This edition of the Awards marks the 5-year anniversary of Climathon, uniting thousands of citizens and solutions across 6 continents that bring to life inspiring ideas and solutions for the future we want as citizens. The 2020 Awards recognises citizen teams in two categories: ”'Most improved idea since 2015” and ”Most transformative idea of 2020”.
Climathon Awards offers a platform for Climathon organisers and partners, participating citizens, and hundreds of cities to gain international recognition and showcase how cities can transform toward a net-zero carbon economy. This year, the Awards is open to all citizens of the world to connect, share and take action through digital events.
