Hackathon on Sustainable Mobility
26 Ottobre 2019 - 27 Ottobre 2019
On the occasion of the Global Climathon day, Venice International University is co-organizing the 2019 edition of the Venice Climathon, in collaboration with Venice Calls and the CMCC – Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change. The initiative, promoted by EIT Climate-KIC, is organized as a two-day Hackathon that will take place in VIU venue on the island of San Servolo.
As a climate collective action taking place simultaneously in more than 100 cities in the world, the Climathon aims to unite innovators, entrepreneurs, students and professionals to foster innovative solutions to the city’s climate challenges.
In its fourth Venice’s edition, the focus of this year is on Sustainable Mobility, an extremely relevant theme for Venice fragile lagoon ecosystem and the interconnections between its islands and the historical city, the water landscape and the mainland.
Through conferences, panel discussions and team work sessions, the idea is to encourage innovative projects for the mobility of people and the transport of goods, that can address the urgent human challenges emblematically characterizing the life of the city (sea-level rise, city pollution, industry and mobility system, mass tourism, residential crisis of the city centers and gentrification).
Climathon is a year-round programme, with a solutions-hackathon at its core, translating climate action solutions into tangible projects, supporting climate positive businesses & start-ups and addressing local policy changes. It drives a global movement of change makers and innovators to help humanity achieve zero emissions in 20 to 30 years.
