Climathon Leiden: Cities. Hacking. Solutions.

Join the Leiden Climathon to contribute to a more sustainable city for the future. Waste management and sustainable buildings are some of the biggest challenges when it comes to hacking a climate-proof Leiden, which is why our 2019 Climathon will deal with these climate challenges.

The Climathon is a hackathon in which people all over the world work on local climate challenges that are also globally relevant. The event is an initiative of Climate-KIC, the European climate community that seeks to connect companies, governments, education and science and to work together towards a climate-proof future.

1. Creating the built environment in a sustainable way
2. Sustainable urban green oases
3. Profitable decentralized energy production
4. Sustainability in lower-income households

Winning solutions
Participants will work in teams on a solution to one of the challenges and they will be coached. At the end of the day the solutions are pitched for a jury. The jury chooses one winner per challenge. After the Climathon, the winners will have the opportunity to work out the solution together with professionals.

Everyone can participate in the Climathon, the language will be English. Do you want to participate? Register for the Leiden Climathon via the button below!
