Climathon Venice 2018 on Waste Management

Climathon Venice 2018 is ready to start: How to reduce, recycle and reuse waste in Venice?

The third edition of Venice Climathon will take place on October 25 (9am – 9pm) and 26 (9am-9pm), 2018 at VEGA (“Venice Science Park”, Marghera Venice). Climathon Venice 2018 is organized by CMCC Foundation in partnership with We are Here Venice and Ca’Foscari Challenge School and promoted by the City of Venice, within the initiative “Le Città in Festa”.

Climathon is a global 24-hour climate change hackathon happening simultaneously in more than one hundred cities around the world, promoted by Climate-KIC. It brings together the challenges of the world’s cities with the people who have the passion and ability to solve them. Climathon attracts innovators, entrepreneurs, students and professionals to create innovative solutions to cities climate challenges.

The Challenge of the city of Venice
Venice is one of the world’s most vulnerable cities to the current and expected impacts of climate change. Venice is dominated by tourism, the most waste intensive sector of the local economy. With Venice’s 2018 Climathon, we are looking for ideas and solutions to increase the ability of the city to reduce the impacts of resource use and greenhouse gas emissions, to minimise the impacts of consumption on climate change.

How to make Venice cleaner and show the world new ways of waste reduction to reduce the effects of consumption on climate change? What are the possible approaches to reducing resource use and waste production in Venice? How can arts and science support the cause? What type of projects and communication campaigns can effectively reduce waste generation, limit plastics consumption and improve the climate performance of Venice as an iconic city?

Climathon and the Clara Project

Have a look at the final agenda on the CMCC website or the Climate Kic website, and see how the Clara Project is involved in the event. 

Moreover, on October 25 and 26, follow #Climathon Venice on the social media!
