Developers, designers, creative people, scientists, problem solvers, digital entrepreneurs, makers, experts, innovative start-ups - and anyone else over the age of 18 who is a EU- or UK-citizen or resides in an EU or UK country and who wants to contribute and make an impact. Use your teams’ interdisciplinary skills and be creative together to develop solutions that help EU citizens - and everybody else – to tackle The Climate Challenge. We welcome you all!
Should I apply as a team or as an individual?
If you already have a team, you can apply together and work on your challenge during the online hackathon. Individuals can also apply. We will allocate you to a team in a way that you can use your talent to its best impact. On Slack there will be many opportunities to get in touch with the community and other team members.
If you already have an idea for a concrete project, feel free to put it down in the registration form. We will help you to find additional expertise to drive your idea forward.
