What we're about

In 2018, from spring to autumn, cities from the Climate Innovation city global network, led by Ecopreneurs for the Climate (ECO4CLIM), are running climate-focused hackathons (“climathons”) addressed at young professionals, entrepreneurs and senior students, aimed at boosting eco-entrepreneurship, sustainable innovation, and collaborative networks of cities, all key levers for climate action.

Goals

• Identify city-level challenges related to climate change, both in terms of mitigation and adaptation

• Co-create sustainable & inclusive business solutions

• Train young professionals, entrepreneurs and senior students on climate change, eco-entrepreneurship and sustainable innovation

• Strengthen local green economy ecosystems

• Connect cities and foster exchanges of best practices and models among them

Who are they for?

• Young professionals

• Senior students at university or postgraduate studies

• Young ecopreneurs

What is the value created for participants?

• They can gain or benefit from:

• Specific knowledge on climate change

• Competences on eco-entrepreneurship and sustainable innovation

• Internships and jobs in sustainability

• End-of-studies projects, PhDs, and incubation programs

• Ideas, opportunities, and partners for business creation

• Participation in major national & international events (see prizes)

Ecopreneurs for the Climate Meetup - RD is a fortnightly community event where young people can meet up, help others to brainstorm, meeting new people.

Anyone interested in taking an active role can discuss this further with me.
