What is it about?
As one of the essential steps of Climate Change Tech Accelerator, a Climate Tech Hackathon will be organized to discover innovative solutions, which can overcome challenges in the way of building Resource-efficient cities. Moreover, the Hackathon winners will be given a chance to be part of the Acceleration program.
Climate Change issues are largely affected by urban areas, making cities not only major contributors to it but also vulnerable to its consequences. By taking appropriate measures, cities can make a significant contribution to mitigating climate change and increase their resilience to climate-related shocks. Therefore, the initiative aims at raising awareness about existing challenges of urban development and promoting integrated infrastructures and efficient planning to ensure resilience to climate change, supporting innovative solutions for urban planning and making cities fit for climate change with the intention to make tackling climate change an integrated and strategic element of urban development.
