Young Climathon

What is Young Climathon?

The Young Climathon is a one to two day climate hackathon where students work on a real climate challenge from an industry sector, city, company or school.​


Challenge creation​

Create meaningful challenges with the students, schools, teachers in your city to create long-lasting climate actions and solutions.​


Deep-dive learning on systemic thinking​

The students work with tools that help them to explore the systems in place that need to change to ensure a sustainable future. ​


Young Climathon and Final Pitch​

The students develop solutions to the challenges with experienced coaches and pitch them to the challenge owner. ​

Why join?
