Activating Community for Houston's Climate Action Plan

We envision a more prosperous, inclusive, climate-resilient economy, where finance flows to green projects and activities, and where motivated people are empowered with the skills and capacity they need to take action. This can only be achieved through systemic change – change that includes innovation across business, investment, regulation, governance structures, values and mindsets.

You are invited to play a key role in this vision as a caring citizen and impact innovator by participating in Climathon Houston! The annual Climathon activates local communities around their resiliency and sustainability challenges, to surface new ideas, innovative talent, and solutions with the potential to scale to other communities around the world. Climathon Houston also engages local constituents in the City of Houston's Climate Action Plan — the culmination of thousands of volunteer time from industry professionals, policy stakeholders, and community advocates. Together, these working groups laid out a concise plan to address the climate challenges that Houston faces while maintaining a leadership role in the energy transition.

This year's Climathon will look to realize some of the goals of the plan through design sprints led by local subject matter experts in the areas of Energy Transition, Materials Management, Building Optimization, and Regional Resilience.

Join us in addressing these issues with real-world solutions to these pressing problems we face together!
