Is a program in which communities, citizens and citizens come together to co-create ideas from the local level, and address climate challenges in their contexts.
During a Climathon, local governments, individuals and communities identify and make visible innovative solutions and projects that promote a more sustainable world, while co-creating ideas to address climate challenges from their local level. The Climate-KIC organization developed this program and, since 2019, 2811 has led Climathons in different countries and cities in the Americas.
