Climathon: A Climate Change Hack

Take Glasgow’s climate change challenge

Students across Glasgow – and the World – are invited to join the biggest climate action hackathon in history.

For the first time Scotland’s largest city has signed up to the Climathon challenge, a global initiative run by Climate KIC, the EU’s premier climate innovation platform, to find solutions to climate-related problems.
Berlin, Brussels, Melbourne, Milan, Edinburgh, Paris and dozens of other cities worldwide are taking part.

The organisers of Glasgow’s day are asking people to come and play their part on hacking the issue of transport in Glasgow, and how to reduce its environmental impact. Innovators, entrepreneurs, students, startups and professionals can get involved. And people don’t have to turn up with ideas – they are developed through team working exercises at the College.

Glasgow’s Climathon will be held from 8am to 8pm on 27 October in the Innovation & Enterprise Suite, City of Glasgow College, 190 Cathedral St, Glasgow G4 0RF. It’s free of charge to get involved, you don’t need to have an idea in advance, you just need to register online Breakfast, lunch and dinner are included.
