Climathon is coming to your city!
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.
At the core of the Climathon programme is a yearly ideathon that takes place in your city and in hundreds of other cities across many continents and time-zones.
Over the span of the 12-72 hour ideathon, a diverse group of participants, ranging from policymakers to hackers, youth to academics, students to business leaders, will come together 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.
