Varaždin is a city of baroque, angels, flowers and bicycles. „Little Vienna“ with rich natural legacy interwoven in parks, a must-see destination, located in the North of Croatia on the southern bank of the River Drava. Help us keep our city clean and beautiful by joining 24-hour Climathon and coming up with innovative solutions to improve the waste separation thus to increase the volumes of resources that circulate through the local economy.

We want to improve the management of waste materials in Varaždin so they keep on circulating efficiently and be a resource for the city and the citizens. We are especially keen on textile waste management. Textile waste can be useful and re-purposed into something valuable.

We need your creativity which could improve city waste management and reduce its volume on landfills. It is a resource!
