2018 Climathon Challenge Long Beach: Sustainable Housing

The Long Beach Challenge will focus on solutions to create sustainable housing. Specifically, solutions that will help Long Beach meet the objectives set out in the city’s Climate Action and Adaptation Plan. As the climate continues to change, there is a need to find innovative and creative solutions that reduce fossil fuel use to meet energy and transportation needs. The city of Long Beach along with other communities are addressing many challenges in developing sustainable housing that meets the needs of a growing population. Numerous approaches have been proposed to generate sustainable housing such as more high-density units, tiny houses, heating and cooling via solar energy, linking housing and transportation needs, and more.

This year's program will provide real data download from the California State University Long Beach, the City of Long Beach and the private sector. Workshops will include; Team Buidling, Ideation, Storyboarding, Prototyping, Storytelling, Experimental Work and Perfecting Your Pitch. Complete schedule coming soon.
