Title of Challenge
Climate-Hackathon to make your city cleaner and greener
Description of city challenge
Here's an invitation to shape the future of your city! Are you a developer, techie, entrepreneur, student or any other creative spirit? Then come together for 24 hours and create new solutions for local climate change problems with other like-minded people. Experts and mentors will support your team in your solution-finding process, and we have a small hardware makerZspace available for you to tinker. After intense hours of collaboration your idea gets the chance to be realized thanks to Climate-KIC and the support of the City of Zurich. And, the cherry on top, after the Climathon your team can apply to pitch for access to the Climate-KIC accelerator program where you can win up to EUR 85'000.

SIGN UP HERE: bit.ly/ClimathonZurich

We will provide a great atmosphere and a professional environment to let you prototype as effectively as possible. There will be 24h food & drinks, yoga, inspirational talks, tech support and some sleeping facilities (as if you need it...;)).

CHALLENGES
The Climathon is focusing on the challenges of climate change in your city. If you have already an idea in mind for a local climate change solutions you are welcome to work on it during the Climathon.

At the same time the City of Zurich is providing four thematic challenges, which will be published one after another.

1. Challenge
In order to address climate change, cities will need to adapt to new climate conditions (especially heat hot spots in urbanised areas). How can the city of Zurich improve the quality of life for its citizens in the heavily constructed outdoor spaces (squares, parking spaces etc.), which are subjected to an increase of heatwaves and rising temperatures in summer due to climate change.
The idea is to create cost-effective and simple solutions that can be easily moved and removed. Solutions should be able to be implemented without construction and planning measures.

2. Challenge
How can the City of Zurich motivate homeowners and renters to save energy and implement renewable energy solutions in their homes and businesses?
Solutions should focus on the following:
- Motivating homeowners to change to a climate-friendly heating system
- Convincing homeowners to retrofit their buildings in an energy-efficient way
- Creating new incentives for homeowners and renters to save heating energy and electricity
The priority focus of the solutions should lie in innovative business models and the removal of complexity in switching to climate-friendly sources of energy.

3. Challenge
How can citizens and households of Zurich be encouraged to buy and eat more climate-friendly food (less CO2 emissions) and to reduce food-waste.
Solutions should focus on the following:
- Making use of existing product information about food so citizens can reduce carbon footprint when shopping
- Avoiding food-waste in the households due to easy to use solutions

4. Challenge
How can the individual reduction of greenhouse gases for a defined track be measured and reported and how can citizens be motivated to adapt their behaviour due to that collected information?
The idea is to track and report the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions of a person due to walking, using public transport or bicycle instead of using a motorised vehicle. Solutions should include measures to motivate people to reduce their carbon footprint.
