Climathon Waikato

Time for change. Be the change.

In the face of the climate crisis, we are far from powerless. Climathon is your chance to act - and we are so proud to bring this global hackathon event to the Waikato region.

What is Climathon Waikato?

Climathon Waikato is a hackathon-style event is designed to help you to use your skills to advance climate solutions, rethink the way we live, and create a future you're proud to pass on to the next generation.

At the heart of it all is an Ideathon, where you'll be able to work in a team with fellow changemakers to imagine, explore and develop innovative solutions to our shared climate challenges.

Earlier this year, we held the Waikato's first-ever Climathon. Already, our team is busy planning the next one - set to take place in late-2022.

Climathon Waikato 2022

April 2022 saw us host the Waikato's first-ever Climathon. 

More than 60 changemakers from across the region came together online to develop tangible solutions to some of the Waikato’s greatest climate challenges.

“Everyone showed up with a smile on their face - willing to collaborate, challenge their thinking, validate their beliefs, test their theories, knuckle down, and address these challenges. It was awe-inspiring to see and hear the participant’s ideas for climate action. I’m grateful that so many people gave up their evenings and weekend to focus on fighting climate change”, says Emma Sinclair - the Climathon Waikato Project Lead. 

After a week of developing, validating, and testing ideas under the guidance of local climate heroes and experts, an online climate action volunteer platform - Enviro Story, beat teams from all over the region, and walked away with $2, 000 to help turn their idea into reality.
