World’s biggest climate innovation movement is back! Sign up here: https://climathon.climate-kic.org/en/participate (choose Vilnius!)
🌎 Our home planet is spinning closer and closer to exceeding the 1.5 degrees global warming temperature. Climate change (crisis!) is not just on our doorsteps, but has started entering our homes and cities.
🌳 #CLIMATHON, the largest climate action collective of its kind is a global 48-hour climate change hackathon which takes place simultaneously in more than 100 cities around the world. It brings together the challenges of the world’s cities with the people who have the passion and ability to solve them.
🚀 THIS #EVENT is perfect for people who enjoy creating solutions to complex challenges that have the potential to create huge positive environmental and economic impacts in Lithuania and abroad.
😎 During the event you will choose one out of the following #CHALLENGES:
1. Mobility Challenge | Can we improve our daily journeys and make them easier, greener and more efficient?
2. Food Waste Challenge | We are looking for smart solutions to decrease (or eliminate) the food waste in Lithuania. Can you help us solve this problem?
3. Green Customer Loyalty | How businesses can endorse and evaluate their customers’ involvement towards climate and environmental crisis prevention?
4. Smart Waste Collection | Can we think of some smart, perhaps rewarding ways to help citizens recycle more and do it more efficiently?
5. Energy Challenge | We are looking for energy efficiency solutions for private households.
