The Climathon Zürich 2019 will take place on October 25 and 26, 2019. The 24-hour hackathon is supported by the city of Zürich and will cover the three main areas of urban farming, urban heat islands and citizen’s activation to combat climate change.
The Climathon hackathon is taking place in more than 110 cities all over the world. All events are dedicated to creating climate action in the form of tangible projects, supporting climate positive ideas, startups and businesses, and addressing local policy changes. Besides Zürich, Impact Hub is also organizing Climathons in Basel, Geneva, and Lausanne.
Applicants in Zürich can apply for the following three challenges:
|How might we activate Zürich’s citizens to be part of the solution?||How can we create a restful, edible city and take care of it as a self-organized community?||How can urban heat islands be prevented in Zürich?|
Participants can apply with an existing idea, startup, or find an inspiring team of developers, entrepreneurs, or students at the event itself. During the hackathon, experts and coaches will be on site to support the development of the participants’ project. The best solutions will get the chance to be further developed with the support of the city Zürich, Impact Hub Zürich and this year’s Zürich Climathon Partners. Worldwide, teams with the most inspiring ideas will have the chance to present themselves at the CHANGE NOW Summit in Paris 2020.
Applications are open until 5. October 2019
