Sydney - Climathon 2019


Together we can make Sydney and the world a better place to live

How might we leverage data and technology to develop new solutions that improve Sydney’s resilience to heatwaves, by mitigating related impacts on economic, infrastructure, social and public health outcomes?


Metropolitan Sydney is one of the most diverse cities in the world with a population of close to 5 million people from 200 vibrant cultures.
