Climathon Santos, Brazil
13 Nov 2020 - 14 Nov 2020
Join Climathon SANTOS
We aim at kickstarting a Blue Circular Economy in Brazil.
This involves the systemic connections between urban waste that ends up in the sea; consumer behavior for new trends of animal protein and the impact on overfishing; predatory tourism in coastal cities, among others.
We are organizing the Climathon to engage entrepreneurs in finding out solutions to these problems, from a circular economy perspective.
With a focus on coastal cities and due to our network in the city of Santos (80km from the megalopolis of São Paulo and where the main port for exports is located) we are motivated to host this Climathon 2020 there.
Due to COVID-19, the Climathon Santos will be 100% done online. This way, we keep everyone safe and still get to collaborate and come up with the best solutions together.
