Join the first hackathon for a climate proof Leiden!

Friday 25 October students, professionals, citizens, entrepreneurs and other interested people can work on solutions for climate related challenges. Participants will work in teams on a solution for one of the challenges. They will be guided by experts from companies, governments and knowledge institutes. During the event the teams will be coached in problem definition, ideation, and prototyping. At the end of the day the solutions will be pitched for a jury. Finally the jury will choose a winner which will be supported after the Climathon by PLNT to further develop the solution. Everyone can participate in the Climathon, from students and policymakers to entrepreneurs and other citizens. The main language will be English. You can sign up on https://climathon.climate-kic.org/en/leiden.

About the Climathon

The Climathon is a hackathon in which people all around the world work on local climate challenges which can also be relevant globally. The event is an initiative of Climate-KIC, the European climate community which tries to connect organisations, governments, education and science to work together on a climate proof future. This year the worldwide climathon is organised for the fifth time but for the first time in Leiden. In 2018 more than 100 cities participated from 46 countries with over 5000 participants and more than 400 solutions.
