Houston Climathon

Realizing Houston’s Climate Action Plan

On Earth Day this year, the City of Houston published its first Climate Action Plan. The plan is the culmination of thousands of volunteer time from industry professionals, policy stakeholders, and community advocates. Together the working groups have laid out a concise plan to address the climate challenges that Houston faces along with maintaining a leadership role in the energy transition. 

Climathon Houston 2020

This year’s Climathon will look to realize some of the goals of the plan through design sprints led by local subject matter experts in the areas of TransportationEnergy InnovationBuilding Optimization, and Materials Management.

Join us in addressing these issues with real-world solutions to these pressing problems we face together!

We have Challenge Info Sessions and warmup work sessions ahead of the actual Climathon. Go to http://climathonhouston.com/ to learn more about each Challenge and find the RSVP links to the series of events leading up to The Big Day!
