Valenciaport - Climathon - 25 October 2019

What's in it for me?

  • Assisting in the design of environmental solutions that have a real impact on the port of Valencia
  • To dive into the goods transport sector and its main connection nodes, the ports, through which 90% of the world's goods are moved
  • The possibility of learning from the professionals of the sector who will guide you in achieving the objectives of the challenge.
  • Access to relevant information about the environment in port as well as encouraging constructive discussions about initiatives that could be developed in the port.
  • To know the realities of the port and to be able to understand what problems arise in its installations due to its frenetic operation.
  • Compete in working groups for the best ideas to help solve the challenge and receive an expert assessment from the members of the Valencia Port Authority and the Valenciaport Foundation, the most important maritime research centre in the Mediterranean.
  • A real milestone in your curriculum on environmental issues in real life.
Team building
Can we offer positive solutions that have a relevant impact on the city of one of the most important ports in the world?
By means of the work teams during the Climathon of the port of Valencia we are going to be able to offer innovative, fresh and brilliant solutions to make our port-city a worldwide reference.
City-port integration

The ability of society and industry to address global challenges, to meet the UN Sustainable Development Goals, to tackle societal needs and to adopt emerging technologies, will determine the world of tomorrow and the life of future generations.

Oceans and seas and will be crucial in the world of tomorrow. They will play a major role in addressing global challenges, meeting the UN Sustainable Development Goals and fulfilling societal needs to the extent that the 21th century will be the “century of the oceans”.

Ports are vital and expand the role for the European economy. Moreover, ports are facing a rapidly changing environment, pressing environmental considerations such as sustainability, climate change, etc.
