Time for change, be the change. Join Climathon Chisinau
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.
Come and join us on March 26 - 28, 2021.
This event will take place 100% online!
At the core of the Climathon programme is a ideathon that will take place in our city and in hundreds of other cities across many continents and time-zones.
Come and join a diverse group of participants, ranging from policymakers to hackers, youth to academics, students to business leaders. Together you will come 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.
Ready for a unique experience? Get your chance to have an impact by taking on one of the climate challenges provided by our Partners.
