Under the premise in transforming Lisbon towards a Zero-Carbon City, this year's Climathon has the objective in following through with the European Green Capital 2020 initiative, by planning tomorrow today, through the use of technology, in striving towards a more environmentally-friendly European Capital. In order to create alternative frameworks and solutions made available through technology and innovation, the challenge sets out to transform the city of Lisbon’s waste management processes — reduce, recycle and reuse plastic and food waste generated on a daily basis.

Let’s Reduce, Recycle & Reuse waste!

This year's Climathon is marked by Lisboa winning the European Green Capital 2020. Food and plastic waste are major issues for a capital city such as Lisboa, especially because of tourism pressure. Want to share your ideas on how to achieve zero waste in Lisboa with us?
