Climate change is real. And we need to take action. Now!


Silangueños, if you are passionate about fighting climate change, we invite you to join the first global Climathon initiative happening in Silang-- the first on a municipal level here in the Philippines.

What is a Climathon?

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 an ideathon that takes place in the town of Silang along with hundreds of other cities across many continents and time-zones. The ideathon, a three-day workshop to collaborate ideas and find solution to the solid waste problem of Silang, enjoins a diverse group of participants, ranging from policymakers to hackers, youth to academics, students to business leaders, etc.

By joining climathon you can meet new people, build friendships, collaborate, and create ideas or solutions that are innovative, practical and relevant to the climate challenges of Silang. So what are you waiting for? Register today and become a Silangueño climate hero!

Do I need to have a group before participating?

You can participate on your own, with a group or as an organization.

If you and your friends, colleagues, or organization want to participate make sure that each of you registers separately still. 

What tools will the event use for the online climathon?

We will use Zoom for the Climathon Event from November 13-15, 2020.  We will use SLACK as the main event chat group for announcements, and other communication with the organizers, mentors, and other participants for messaging. 

Submissions for the Pitch Decks will be via google drive. All video pitches will have to be uploaded to a YouTube channel and the link will be shared with the organizers. 

Participants can use other free video call platforms (Facebook Messenger, Hangouts, Skype, and  Jitsi) when they are collaborating with their respective teams and not on the climathon event workshops.

Can I submit any idea about climate solutions?

Every climathon, there is a specific design challenge/s that the host city will focus on and the participants will submit ideas based on that challenge. 

This year for Silang, we will focus on Solid Waste. Check out the details of the design challenge here on our website. 

How can I join as a coach/expert?

You can contact us at climathon.silang@gmail.com and we will contact you and ask for details of your experience and expertise that is relevant to the design challenge. 

Is this a competition?

Aside from climathon being a venue for transformative and innovative solutions to take climate action, all participants will be able to pitch their ideas to a panel of judges and the winning teams will get support to run a pilot in Silang. 

What does the climathon format look like?

At the core of the Climathon program is an ideathon, this is the main event, where you will get together digitally or in-person with fellow citizens and local stakeholders to come up with ideas to your city's climate challenges.

Although the program is built around this ideathon, local organizers can host additional warm-up events and follow-up activities to make sure the community remains engaged, ideas are shared and long-lasting impact can be achieved.

Integral to the local Climathons, there is the Global Climathon Awards - this is a global networking event to present, celebrate, and boost the most transformative ideas from local Climathons.

I am from the local government. How do I participate?

Engaging with the Climathon in your city ensures insight and a voice in future-focused conversations between citizens, stakeholders, and decision-makers.

As a city authority, you have the option to become a local organizer yourself, but most commonly, a city authority collaborates with your city’s local organizer for Climathon.

Your involvement can be a combination or one of the following forms: formal endorsement, sponsorship, or be one of the coaches.

How do we get updates?

We will post updates on our social media pages on Facebook and Instagram. (see the links at the footer of the website)

Will there be a pre-event orientation for registered participants?

We will be hosting one orientation and we will send the video recording to participants who were not able to join the orientation. 

Will we be required to be online for the three-day climathon?

We will be providing the schedule soon and give the details on when you will be online for the group activities and your respective teams. 

When you are not online for the group activities and workshops, you will be communicating with your teammates virtually via chat or video calls. 

More details about this will be discussed during the pre-event orientation for registered participants. 

Stay tuned for updates on our social media.

Can we be with our team in one place/venue?

We strongly advise that you stay in your own homes and join the climathon event online through your computer, tablet, or mobile device. Your safety is extremely important to us.

By doing this you are not just protecting yourself, but you are protecting your families and others as well.
