Climathon Week 2021 - Be the change!


Join us for week-long programme of climate action

Each year, Climathon brings together hundreds of cities and thousands of participants. Our 2021 edition is back and bolder than ever - spanning an entire “Week of Action” on 25-31 October where we celebrate, recognize and support the climate actions taken by citizens, youth, entrepreneurs, and change-makers all over the world. Join us in the lead-up to the UNFCCC COP26 and help shape the future of your city.

What is Climathon?

Climathon is a city-based programme, created by EIT Climate-KIC, that offers a clear pathway to action and interaction - an opportunity for cities and citizens to co-create local ideas to shared climate challenges. At the core of the programme is an ideathon organised by passionate local organisers; the people who know their cities and climate challenges the best.

How can I take part?

There are three different ways you can take part in the programme. You can take your ideas to the next level by finding your local Climathon and becoming a participant. If you want to arrange a Climathon in your community, you can take the lead and bring the programme to your city by becoming a local organiser. Last, but definitely not least, you can partner with us or sponsor us and help us to grow our movement globally.
