WWF TO HOST CLIMATHON

Posted on
15 June 2017
On the 29th – 30th June, WWF Zambia in partnership with Impact Hub Kigali and ICLEI will be hosting the first ever Climathon in Lusaka at Bongo Hive.

A Climathon, typically is a co-creation engagement process in form of a 24h challenge dedicated to solving a discrete problem. The theme for this Climathon is ‘Let us brainstorm for a cleaner and more sustainable Lusaka in this climate hackathon’ and it will have different activities on that day including, key-notes, group work and a report following the event.

Impact Hub Kigali will facilitate two days of stakeholder co-creation and collaboration focused on clarifying key challenges associated with water, energy, food and mobility in Lusaka City as well as the generation of possible policy, business and non-profit interventions that can be piloted to address the selected key issues. The event is being co-organized by Impact Hub Kigali, WWF and ICLEI. Key stakeholders, city officials, academia, media, the Young Conservation Trailblazers and other members of the innovation community in Zambia will be in attendance.
This project will help all involved to create a strong relationship with the City of Lusaka, as well as other interested organizations to set a foundation for strengthening the One Planet City Challenge, the #WeLoveCities campaign and other projects in partnership with WWF. It would also create an opportunity for generating press attention to the work of WWF in the region and will reinforce the importance of integrating climate and environment considerations in city planning.
