Climathon 2018

Cities around the world

What is Climathon?

Originally conceptualised as a 24-hour hackathon by EIT Climate-KIC, Climathon has since taken off as a global movement, engaging citizens on climate action—and providing cities with continued support on the unique challenges they face.

Setting the climate challenge

Cities identify their climate challenges and call on their citizens to come up with innovative solutions.

Coming up with solutions

Citizens, city officials, and partners connect under a shared vision for a healthier city, which is manifested in a 24-hour hackathon to find innovative city solutions.



Beyond the hackathon

Innovation happens when diverse perspectives are brought together—creating both tangible climate solutions for cities and empowered communities. Climathon is more than a hackathon, it’s a movement.

Why engage?

With an issue as pressing as climate change, we cannot afford inaction. Climathon gives cities the opportunity to take their future into their own hands and implement grassroots solutions—empowering their own citizens along the way.


The Climathon movement is manifested in a 24-hour hackathon.

During the hackathon, entrepreneurs, students, developers and more, get together to solve a climate challenge their city is facing.
