Our mission

We are a global community of climate-minded people working together to help our cities decarbonise.

Climathon is a global movement, orchestrated by EIT Climate-KIC, that empowers citizens to take action against climate change. We firmly believe that local activation and collaboration are essential in addressing the pressing challenges posed by climate change. 

Through Climathon, we seek to inspire, connect, and support local changemakers who are determined to accelerate the transition to a zero-carbon, climate resilient society. We understand the importance of starting at the local level, as it is here that impactful transformations can take root and spread.

By participating in Climathon, citizens have the opportunity to take meaningful action within their communities, collaborate with decision-makers and future leaders, and contribute to the development of zero-carbon, climate-resilient cities.

What we do

A Climathon event is organized and fully planned by independent local organizers who share a common interest in climate-related issues. These organizers serve as catalysts for change within their respective communities, facilitating discussions, workshops, and initiatives that aim to address local climate challenges.

Climathon provides a platform for these organizers to leverage their passion and expertise, fostering an environment conducive to innovation, collaboration, and tangible outcomes.

Join Climathon and become part of a global community of individuals and communities committed to making a difference. Together, we can create a sustainable future and leave a positive impact on the planet. Take the first step towards local action, connect with like-minded individuals, and contribute to the global fight against climate change.
