Description

Climathon is a global hackathon initiative promoted by EIT Climate-KIC that takes place in many different cities around the World with the aim of generating innovative ideas to rethink cities and the future in which we want to live. The event was open to the participation of companies, institutions, associations, students, researchers, entrepreneurs, as well as technicians and professionals.
Participants had to design innovative solutions to one of the following challenges in groups of 4-6 people:

How to make the food system in Madrid more sustainable?
How to communicate, educate and raise awareness about the problems related to Climate Change in Madrid?

The teams had to present their prototypes in a Final Pitch and a jury chose the winner team, which won a basket of products from Huertos Vega del Tajuana. In addition, a certificate of participation was given to all participants and all teams are able to present their ideas to the Climathon award call that Climate-KIC has recently published to incubate projects aligned with the New European Bauhaus.
