   The challenge:   Improving energy performance in buildings through active involvement of citizens

What is it?

Climathon is a global 24-hour climate change hackathon, powered by Climate-KIC, which will take place simultaneously in major cities around the world on 27 October 2017.


This year InnoEnergy and Climate-KIC team up for the organization of the first Climathon in Brussels! Around the topic of energy and cities, buildings & citizens, participants will take part in a challenge-based experience to propose solutions to tackle concrete issues of the city of Brussels. Past Climathons have shown that local solutions can lead to global impact!
