The partners and sponsors for Climathon Leuven are:
𝗖𝗹𝗶𝗺𝗮𝘁𝗵𝗼𝗻 is a city-based, global programme that offers a pathway to climate action. An initiative was created a few years ago by EIT Climate-KIC in which small groups of enterprising or action-oriented citizens in different cities think about locally selected climate or sustainability challenges.
The goal, then, is to find innovative solutions on how to tackle them concretely.
The global idea is to raise climate awareness, disrupt the status quo, and rethink the places we live in and the future we want as citizens. At the core of the Climathon programme is an ideathon. The ideathon, usually short and intense, brings different people with various backgrounds to brainstorm innovative ideas to tackle problems together.
It is actually the first time for Leuven, the European Capital of Innovation, to participate in global action to tackle climate challenges! The local initiative was taken by Leuven 2030 who recruited ᒪ ᐯ ᑎ (Leuven Value Network) to co-host the event.
📍 Climathon Leuven 2021 will be held on Friday and Saturday 12th - 13th of November 2021 and it will at two locations:
