For 24 hours in October, thousand of people around the world are gathering to create the solutions our cities need to thrive in a changing climate.

  • Wellington Climathon

    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.

    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
