Solving Wellingtons Greatest Challenges.
Maintaining our title as Best City in the World!
Wellington maybe the best place in the world to live in (Deutsche Bank, 2017), but we are not isolated from the challenges ahead of us that a changing climate provide.
Climathon Wellington is the place where you come to learn about Wellingtons Challenges and team up with other bright minds to create solutions.
How Climathon Works
What you can expect during the 24 hour event
Propose solutions & form teams
Friday night is focused on exploring the city's problem areas, developing possible solutions, and pitching your ideas to form teams.
Run experiments to test your ideas
On Saturday, explore these solutions further using lean methodologies, develop and test hypothesis, and discuss your solution with business professionals and problem experts
Present progress and win support
On Saturday evening, teams present their solutions to a judging panel, who will determine which ideas are most appropriate for each of the available support packages.
Your ramp to a global stage
#ClimathonNZ is part of a global series of events organised by Climate-KIC. Wellington will join 230+ other major cities around the world in a 24 hour challenge to create Climate Change solutions!
A fast paced 24 hours to muck in, collaborate with new people and extend your networks globally, learn new skills to challenge your thinking and push your ideas into action.
YOUR ROAD TO IMPACT
We have a range of support packages to suit a variety of ideas during and after the Climathon! Build and test an idea during the 24 hour event, then pitch to access the continued support.
