Generating Ideas for Climate Transition in Limerick

A Climathon brings a city community together to collaborate on addressing local challenges to climate change issues. We're excited to hear from local people with an idea to help Limerick become a more sustainable city. 

Do you have an idea?

Last year, Limerick hosted an in-person event over two intense days, brainstorming and developing ideas to help the city combat climate change at local level. This year, due to Covid-19 restrictions, we're reimagining our Climathon

In 2020, the Climathon will be stretched out in time and run virtually. A series of sessions will take place throughout October and November, culminating on November 13, world Climathon day.

Limerick’s Climathon is part of the +CityxChange project, with four other project cities (Trondheim, Voru, Sestao, Pisek) running simultaneous connected events, and we'll all join together for a celebratory final day.

A new kind of Climathon in Limerick

The Climathon will offer participant groups a space to develop an idea or project that will contribute to the city's ability to face the challenges of climate change. Groups will be supported to brainstorm their ideas, come up with a strong project, do some research to refine the idea, and get advice from experts in the area. A final pitching session will give participant groups an opportunity to share the progress of their ideas across all seven +CityxChange cities, and the best ideas will get further support to begin implementing their project.

Meet the Organisers

The Limerick Climathon is being run as part of the +CityxChange project, a H2020 European project across seven cities, where Limerick is a Lighthouse City. 

Space Engagers, a research and co-design collective, are coordinating the event, with support from Limerick City and County Council.
