About Climathon

Climathon is a global, 24-hour climate change event which will take place simultaneously in major cities around the world. It brings together the challenges of the world’s cities with the people who have the passion and ability to solve them. Participants gather for 24 hours to engage in a climate-related problem-solving workshop. Citizens around the world take direct climate action in their own cities by coming up with innovative solutions to local climate change problems.

The Canberra Climathon Challenge: How can we make Canberra the electric vehicle capital of Australia?

Canberra is in the perfect position to lead the nation in electric vehicle uptake. It has a robust electricity network, a population of progressive people willing to embrace change, and a compact city so range anxiety shouldn’t be a problem. (Not convinced yet? Read this article.)
