Dublin is an energetic city with a young population and a highly skilled and educated workforce. The city is home to Europe's largest urban green space, yet it is also hampered by poor air quality from traffic congestion. Much progress has been made with public transport and an increase in cycle lanes, yet changing the use of inner-city urban traffic routes has proven to be a highly challenging and slow process. The city is renowned for its stunning 18th and 19th century architecture, but with this also comes a legacy of an inadequate water system, leaving the city vulnerable to water shortages and flooding during extreme conditions. Dublin has huge potential for ground-breaking climate innovation and is an ideal size to showcase new urban solutions.

Join us for the Climathon in Trinity College Dublin to showcase the city as a real-life laboratory for climate-innovation in transport, water management and air quality.

Challenges

These exciting challenges are waiting to be solved by you. (1) Air pollution, (2) Mobility, (3) Water management, (4) Extreme weather.

Help solve Dublin's transport and air quality challenge

Globally, more than 80% of people living in urban areas are exposed to poor air quality. Reducing air pollution should be a priority to all cities, not just for decreasing the negative effects of climate change, but for citizens’ health as well.

How can we make Dublin's water management strategies more climate resilient?

Cities face increasing water challenges due to climate change. Water utilities, such as drinking water infrastructure, wastewater and drainage can be damaged by storms, sea level rise, and unsustainable policies. Climate change also causes water shortage, affecting over 150 million people globally.
