Climate impacts are touching every part of the globe – but you know the climate challenges your community is facing the best.

Climathon is a global movement that is organized locally. So it is a city-based program that offers a clear pathway to climate action. At the core of the Climathon program is a yearly 24-hour idea-marathon, ideathon, that takes place in hundreds of other cities across many continents.

During the ideathon, a diverse group of participants, ranging from policymakers to hackers, youth to academics, students to business leaders, will come together to collaborate on forward-thinking ideas that tackle local climate challenges.

Take part and join a global community of thousands who want to act now, and rethink the cities we live in and the future we want as citizens.

This year, hundreds of cities across the globe will once again come together – either in-person or online  – on November 13 and celebrate Global Climathon Day. Thousands of citizens will collaborate to raise climate awareness, disrupt the status quo, and reimagine the future of how we produce, move, and consume.
