We need you & your creativity to reach Zurich's Climate Goals!

Join us & participate in the biggest climate hackathon in the world. Contribute to finding innovative & local solutions for the global climate emergency. Apply with an existing idea, as a startup or a motivated individual, ready to #TakeAction for our climate.   

This is your chance to have an impact by taking on one of five climate challenges provided by the City of Zurich: 

  • Challenge 1: Climate action now!
  • Challenge 2: Create circular & renewable energy districts
  • Challenge 3: Car free Zurich

As part of a diverse team, with participants ranging from policymakers to hackers, youth to academics, students to business leaders, and supported by experienced coaches and various experts you have 24 hours to come up with a solution that will impress the jury. 

The most inspiring solutions will get the chance to be further developed with the support of the City Zurich, Impact Hub Zurich and this year’s Climathon Partners.

Due to the deteriorated Covid-19 situation in Zurich and the whole of Switzerland, Climathon Zurich will be 100% virtually this year, but we are dedicated to not let the pandemic stop us from taking climate action. Your digital experience will include live streams of all key sessions, workshop webinars, Zoom meetings with experts and coaches and more surprises.

The Climathon experience

Climathon in Zurich is more than just one event, it is a series of events creating a community of people sharing the same goal, to save our planet and make Zurich a greener and more livable city. 

Your path begins with the Pre-Event where you will learn more about this year’s challenges and get to know your fellow participants and their ideas. 

The main event is the actual Climathon, where you and your team have 24 hours to come up with an innovative solution addressing one of the five challenges. Here you get to work and brainstorm, design and challenge your idea with coaches and experts. The event culminates in the Festival of Ideas with all teams present what they have developed and then the jury announcing this year’s winners at the closing ceremony.

The end of the Climathon is not the end of your journey, far from it. Follow-up events will support you in developing your ideas further, meeting with city authorities  and ensure that you will not have seen all the amazing people you’ve met during the Ideathon for the last time.
