Climathon Tallinn 2021 - Global Sustainability Hackathon
Climate impacts are touching every part of the globe - but you know the climate challenges your community is facing the best.
Climathon is a global movement that organises locally; a city-based programme that offers a clear pathway to climate action.
At the core of the Climathon programme is a yearly ideathon that takes place in your city and in hundreds of other cities across many continents and time-zones.
Over the span of the 24-hour ideathon, a diverse group of participants, ranging from policymakers to hackers, youth to academics, students to business leaders, will come together to collaborate on forward-thinking ideas that tackle local climate challenges.
Take part and join a global community of thousands who want to act now, and rethink the cities we live in and the future we want as citizens.
Tallinn City Climathon events
This year, Climathon will include 2 warm-up events during October, to get to know each other and set up the local climate-related challenges that Tallinn city faces.
The main event, the Ideathon will take place on 29th-30th of October and it is your opportunity to co-create ideas that address local climate challenges.
The Climathon Journey doesn't stop here. Climate changemakers will have the opportunity to re-connect, share their ideas and create impact together in our follow-up event for the winning teams by the end of November.
By introducing some amazing and innovative brainstorming techniques that enable creative thinking, you will have the opportunity to get prepared for the main Climathon event on the 29th of October.
Please make sure to register to the event so that you can receive the Zoom link.
