Communities around the world are working to rethink the cities we live in and the future we want, raise awareness for our challenges and ideas, engage our neighbors, and take collective action for a brighter future. In global partnership with EIT Climate-KIC and local collaboration with the Mayor’s Office of Innovation, Impact Hub Houston catalyzes action for our region’s Climate Action Plan by inviting you to join us for the biggest climate hackathon in the world: Climathon! This annual program provides a launchpad for real-world solutions, ESG (Environment, Social, and Governance) related start-ups, and meaningful relationships with key stakeholders and decision-makers.
To keep its title of “Energy Capital of the World,” Houston must lead in the global Energy Transition. We have the unique opportunity to do so while creating massive impact in multiple Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) related to climate action (SDG 13):
Become a Climathon Partner and leverage this opportunity to:
- Engage Houston’s public, private, and innovation ecosystems to develop real-world solutions for regional sustainability and economic resilience
- Build stronger relationships among impact-centered organizations and diverse communities of practice
- Connect with thought leaders, subject matter experts, designers, developers, entrepreneurs, policymakers and activists to create viable and effective solutions for persistent challenges
We envision a more prosperous, equitable, climate-resilient economy, where finance flows to green projects and activities, and where motivated people are empowered with the skills and capacity they need to take action. You are invited to join us in this vision, and use your ingenuity and passion to move Houston another step closer to it. You also have the opportunity to foster sustainable outcomes: As a Challenge Partner, you can sponsor solutions development around a specific theme or present your own challenge for participants to work on!
