Co-create innovative solutions to make Trondheim a smart and sustainable city!

Climathon is a 24-hour climate hackthon taking place simultaneously in cities around the world. We'd like to invite students, researchers, citizens and entrepreneurs to join and co-create innovative climate solutions.

Trondheim is the third largest city in Norway, with a population of about 190,000 people. Hosting prominent knowledge institutions such as the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and SINTEF, the biggest independent multidisciplinary research institution in Scandinavia, Trondheim is known as the technological capital of Norway.

Trondheim has a long tradition of environmental excellence and commitment. The Municipal Plan for Energy and Climate 2017-2030 aims for 80% reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 (1991 baseline). One of the main goals is to develop Trondheim into a smart and sustainable city where it is easy for the inhabitants to live environmentally friendly.

Climathon is a great arena for citizen engagement and multidisciplinary partnership.

Challenge of Climathon Trondheim 2018

Join the global Climathon movement, drive local climate action!

How can we reduce the carbon footprint of university operations by measures for circular economy?

NTNU has the environmental ambition to reduce its carbon footprint from all categories. Purchases of goods and service other than energy use and transportation adds up to 45% of NTNU’s total carbon footprint. We need more concrete solutions to reduce the impact from this category!
