Reimagining urban mobility
Climathon Piacenza is an idea generation initiative that aims to involve students and young professionals, as well as local institutions and stakeholders, in a discussion around challenges concerning sustainable urban mobility and in the development of possible solutions.
Climathon Piacenza is the city-wide variation of Climathon, an initiative organized globally by EIT Climate KIC and supported by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology, with the aim of raising awareness among citizens about sustainability issues and providing support to cities in search of solutions to the challenges that climate change poses.
The title of the first edition of Climathon Piacenza is "Reimagining urban mobility" and within the various activities scheduled, which will culminate with two days of Hackathon, the topic will be addressed from a variety of perspectives relevant to the local context, ranging from cycling to city logistics.

Make your local idea count
Climathon Piacenza provides for the organization of a preparatory session and a 2-day hackathon, during which participants will be asked to respond in an innovative way to one of the proposed challenges.
Participants will be invited to attend a preparatory online workshop to familiarize with a variety of tools useful to come up with a successful idea and turn it into a winning project during the Hackathon. Particular attention will be given to Business Model Canvas, a strategic management tool to quickly and easily define and communicate a business idea or concept.
