Climathon is a 24hour global hackathon style event where a vast range of people come together to tackle environmental and climate challenges. This year, Birmingham City Council set the Climathon Birmingham teams the challenge of tackling Environmental and Public Health challenges in the city.
Innovation Birmingham brought Ian in to aid the design of the 24 hours and to facilitate the event itself, leading the teams through an intensive 24 hours and coaching them on the development of their proposals.
It was an intense and exciting time with great collaboration and inspiring ideas. The winning team also went on to secure a grant from the Council’s public health function to develop their ideas further and conduct a feasibility study into bringing their proposal to life.
