Our climate innovation digital marathons, shortly called 'Climathons', are initiatives that seek to guide practical ideas for local climate solutions. Inspired by EIT Climate KIC, more than 150 cities and municipalities organize Climathons around the world each year.
With the Melton Foundation local #Climathon, we join a global movement to design solutions that address climate change and its adverse effects at the grassroots level. By associating with us for a Climathon, you join a global community of change-makers and innovators working in their communities to help humanity achieve the zero-emissions goal.
The best ideas are born in collaboration and from the community, and our local Climathons are a playground for genesis of innovative climate solutions!
Winners of the Climathon can apply for EIT Climate-KIC Global Awards and can gain visibility once solution ideas have been uploaded to the Climathon global platform! What’s more, winners can also apply for the EIT Climate-KIC Climate Launchpads to incubate/accelerate their idea further. More exciting prizes coming soon!
Registration to the Climathon happens on an individual basis. Once you have registered for the Climathon, on the first day, you will be asked to form an inter-disciplinary team with the other registrants.
Want to work across domains and gain insights into the brightest minds working in the field of climate change? Here is an opportunity for all young social innovators to change the world one idea at a time! Welcome aboard!
The Melton Foundation and our collaborators invite you to participate in our local Climathons happening around the globe! If you're in the city, join us digitally, work with inter-disciplinary teams, and become part of the solution!
The Melton Foundation and our collaborators invite you to combat air pollution! Participate in the ClimathonTemuco this September 24-26, 2020, and be part of an interdisciplinary team that seeks to improve the air in Temuco and Padre Las Casas. In just 2.5 days, participants will develop prototype solutions to address air pollution issues, and the best teams will receive exciting prizes, and more!
The ClimathonBLR will focus on urban waste management in the ‘garden’ city of Bengaluru, India. With a burgeoning population, expanding peripheries, and rapid urbanization, there is a dire need for scientific waste management in the 'Silicon Valley of India'. Climathon Bengaluru is an opportunity for all young social innovators to reimagine Bengaluru and solve its rising 'Waste Management' crisis, one idea at a time!
The Climathon is a roughly 50-hour online idea marathon, where diverse minds converge to brainstorm and develop practical prototypes to combat climate change and contribute towards molding a resilient ecosystem. As the world unites to grapple with this unprecedented crisis, the role of global changemakers, innovation, and sustainability have become more pivotal than ever before. Climathon Hangzhou is coming soon!
