Event description

Description

If you have an idea to reduce carbon emissions, build resilience to climate change in Wellington, or want to use your skills on projects that can, register for Climathon (tickets limited).

Climathon is a fast paced global 24 hour challenge, taking place in 240 cities around the world.

You will be part of a small and talented group taking an educated approach to creating and testing solutions to reduce carbon emissions, create a more climate resilient Wellington and make the most of the opportunity that the green growth economy (valued at NZ$6 trillion in 2009) presents.

You will have;

  • Expert design thinking and startup coaches to help you get the most out of the 24 hours

  • Industry and knowledge leaders in the space to call on

  • The latest information at your fingertips

  • Prizes that support new ideas to take the next step, such as;

    • $6000 research funding

    • A place in the Victoria Uni Entrepreneurship Bootcamp (valued at over $7,500)

    • Support to apply for $5000 of Deep South Challenge Funding

    • Workshops with professional business advisors to progress the idea.


The three key challenges this year are;

  1. What new ways can we engage key communities in conversations about potential future challenges?

  2. When will infrastructure break and what are the obvious solutions?

  3. How can we improve waste and transport in Wellington?


This challenge is perfect for people from all sectors who enjoy creating solutions to complex challenges that have potential for huge positive impacts here in Wellington and offshore.

  • Business & entrepreneurship

  • Civil Engineering, architecture and planning

  • Developers, designers and facilitators

  • Sustainability and environmental expertise

  • Others not listed!


Our goal is to support you to make this city of ours even better. You will be fed, there will be massage therapists on site and even a yoga session to keep your brain in peak flow.

If you have an idea or want to offer your skills to be a part of this small and specialised group, register now (tickets limited).

Climathon Wellington is made possible by the generous support of Wellington City Council and Victoria University of Wellington.
