Wolkersdorf - Climathon 2019


Join the Climathon in Wolkersdorf!

Be part of the pioneering spirit in Obersdorf! Solve exciting climate challenges with like-minded people, develop your skills and learn from experienced coaches and mentors while enjoying food & drinks and some vitalizing exercises!

Our first Climathon! Join us on Friday, Oct. 25th

What's in it for me?

Be a part of the solutions for a low-carbon, climate-resilient Wolkersdorf!

Work with like-minded people, business coaches and industry experts to support the creation of viable solutions in the fields of "Mobility""Energy" and "Water Management".

We will support you in developing the most innovative, practical and ambitious ideas in a unique and stimulating environment. The event takes place in Obersdorf, a village of 2.000 inhabitants and part of the agglomeration of the city of Wolkersdorf. We believe that we can make a difference in the larger region and set the impuls for more climate-friendly initiatives in rural areas.

Thanks to our supporting partners and Climate-KIC's Europe-wide network of climate innovators, the Climathon Vienna 2019 does not end on October 25th. It may just be the start for your own journey as an innovator - turning your ideas into reality!


We want to create a prosperous, climate-resilient future for Wolkersdorf. We want to make life in this beautiful city even more liveable and convenient while using our resources more consciously and preserving the natural environment that supports our lifestyles, health and wellbeing. 

Our aim is to achieve the city's ambitious climate and sustainability goals by engaging local entrepreneurs, students, activists, developers and innovators on climate action, empowering and showcasing local climate action across the globe and engaging with new global partners.


A growing world population, our widespread dependency on fossil fuels as well as the already visible impacts of climate change call for action now, not tomorrow.

We believe that real change can only be achieved in a collaborative way, turning local climate projects into global movements.

The climathon calls for action in more than 100 cities on 6 continents, fostering climate innovation for a greener future worldwide!
