Climathon Cities Award
Climathon Cities Award
Crowther Lab and EIT Climate-KIC are joining forces and calling for cities around the world to engage in climate action through the inaugural ‘Climathon Global Awards’ to find new systems level solutions to tackle the worsening climate crisis. The vision is to transform 100 cities into carbon neutral areas by 2030.
The Climathon Cities Award, which will run alongside the Climathon Citizens Award, rewards those cities ready to realise their vision of a climate-resilient society. Crowther Lab and Climate EIT will work with winning entries and cities to tackle major issues including: greenhouse gas emissions, energy inefficiency and air pollution. Winning cities will receive fast track coaching and support by world-leading experts in their fields. Seed funding will be available for the top visionary concepts as well as an opportunity to connect and exchange with EIT Climate-KIC’s network of Healthy, Clean Cities Deep Demonstration.
5 nominees has been selected to go to the Cities Award bootcamp and ceremony taking place in Paris on January 30-31. To learn more about their vision and the project they submitted check out their interview!

This map outlines the current UHI, precipitation, and population figures for 300 major global cities – what’s your cities UHI, and how do you think they could offset that? See our Knowledge Pack case studies for some ideas!
Taking innovative ideas and implementing them at the city level will be critical. This is where the City Award comes in: you as a local authority can apply with a systemic action plan of what you would like to do, whether alone or with local partners, and win support to make your vision a reality.
