Zürich - Climathon 2019


Let’s tackle Zürich’s climate challenges together!

The Climathon is a 24-hour hackathon dedicated to creating climate action in the form of tangible projects, supporting climate positive projects, startups and businesses in Zürich, and addressing local policy changes.



Registration closes on 5 October! 

Join the Climathon in Zürich to connect with city officials and partners to bring about a shared vision for a more sustainable and resilient city.

Turn this vision into a reality by working together with developers, entrepreneurs, or students to find innovative city solutions and win support from the City of Zürich, Impact Hub, Climate KIC, and other partners. You can come with an existing idea, startup, or work on a new solution with an inspiring team. Experts and coaches will be on site to help you. 

The best solutions will get the chance to be further developed with the support of this year's Zürich Climathon Partners. Worldwide, teams with the most inspiring ideas will have the chance to present themselves at the CHANGE NOW Summit in Paris 2020. 

We are looking forward to #takeAction for the Climate with you!
