EIT Climate-KIC launches Climathon: join the global movement!

The hackathon is tacking place in 6o countries across the globe

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.

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.


The Climathon 24-hour hackathon will happen simultaneously in cities around the world on 26 October 2018.
