Time for change

A big thank you to all those who joined Digital Climathon Mendrisio! Congratulations to all the teams for the great ideas they developed.
The Jury selected the following ideas as the most promising ones:

  • Atelier di trasformazione alimentare (“Food processing lab”), aimed at creating a process for the recovery of unsold and unwanted food (for example, two-headed carrots discarded by large retailers), through a restaurant/take-away, and the recycling of vegetable waste for biogas production. The team won a 5'000 CHF contribution to start implementing their idea, offered by Canton Ticino-Dipartimento del territorio;
  • Impact label, aimed at developing an information label for the conscious consumer, which reports the amount of CO2 emitted in the life cycle of each product (transport, distance, type of vehicle, production process, packaging, and disposal), energy consumption and consumption of natural resources. The team won a 3'000 CHF contribution to start implementing their idea, offered by Ente Regionale per lo Sviluppo del Mendrisiotto e Basso Ceresio.

You can find all the streaming sessions on the YouTube channel of Impact Hub Ticino. Have a look at all the ideas developed by the participating teams, as they presented them during the pitching session, or at the Digital Climathon Mendrisio press release!
