Climathon is a global movement that organises locally; a city-based programme that offers a clear pathway to climate action.

At the core of the Climathon programme is a yearly ideathon that takes place in your city and in hundreds of other cities across many continents and time-zones.

Over the span of the 12-72 hour ideation, 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. This year Climathon Accra will happen on the 13-14 November 2020

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.  


  • The winning solutions in the local editions of Climathon participate in the world competition.
  • Global winners receive a cash prize to invest in their project and ongoing technical support from the EIT Climate-KIC network.
  • Mentorship and internship opportunities.
  • All participants get their stories published in the Global Climathon site.
