Climathon Thessaloniki 2021

Let’s make our city carbon-free!

Join the first Climathon in Thessaloniki and Northern Greece!!

What is Climathon?

EIT Climate-KIC’s Climathon is the world‘s biggest 24hr climate innovation hackathon. It is a rapidly growing global movement focused on citizen engagement, that sees cities and citizens coming together to solve local climate change challenges.

Climathon is a city-based programme that offers a clear pathway to action and interaction – an opportunity for cities and citizens to co-create local ideas to shared climate challenges. Climathon brings together students, young and older people, organizations, local stakeholders, the public and private sector, the local authorities in order to tackle a local challenge. 

Climathon Thessaloniki 2021 is going to take place between 13-14 November 2021 at the ΟΚ!Thess, Makridi Mansion (str. Maria Callas 23). 

The challenge set for Climathon Thessaloniki 2021 is “Urban Energy Transition“.

Energy transition is a pathway toward transformation of the global energy sector from fossil-based systems of energy production and consumption — including oil, natural gas and coal — to zero-carbon sources by the second half of this century (2050). At its heart is the need to reduce energy-related CO2 emissions to limit climate change.

Participants will be asked to work in small groups and develop innovative solutions for at least one of the following fields of interest:

  • Sustainable and Aesthetically Pleasing Urban Buildings
  • Household Energy 
  • Sustainable Universities
  • Sustainable Urban Mobility
  • Optimization Solutions for Distribution Networks
  • Awareness and Education of Citizens
  • Open Data and Participatory Planning for Energy and Climate

More information available on the official website.
