Help tackle climate challenges at the European Hackathon!

Date: 20. 06. 2024 at 16:00 - 22. 06. 2024 at 19:00

From June 20 to 22, 2024, citizens and researchers from all over Europe will join forces to develop innovative solutions to climate change. Join this exciting initiative! Would you like to contribute your ideas? Propose a climate problem that affects your area and work with others to find technological or social innovation solutions.

Why is your participation important?

Climate challenges are among the greatest threats to humanity. Global warming caused by greenhouse gas emissions is leading to rising sea levels and more frequent and intense weather events such as hurricanes, floods and droughts. The melting of glaciers and Arctic ice is contributing to changes in ecosystems and threatening many animal and plant species. Climate change also affects agriculture, reduces the availability of drinking water and causes population migration. Global cooperation, a switch to renewable energy and sustainable practices in all areas of society are therefore urgently needed.

An opportunity for you!

The European Hackathon is an initiative to encourage and bring together citizens and researchers from different countries to jointly develop technological and societal innovation solutions to tackle climate challenges.

Why participate?

  • Network: Meet like-minded people interested in tackling innovative climate challenges.
  • Collaborate: Work as a team to develop technical and social solutions.
  • Educate: Learn about entrepreneurship, sustainability, social innovation and more.

Prizes: Win a local hackathon and compete for €5,000 in the European final.
