Climathon Challenge: Climate Innovations to improve Public Health

Event Description

Climathon Challenge: Climate Innovations to improve Public Health
Where: Birmingham, UK
When: 27.10.16 and 28.10.16

Have you got what it takes to run a business? Give us 24 hours and we and the rest of the World will let you know!

We are looking for smart, creative, energetic, determined people who will compete in a 24-hour battle to design and build a new business that would improve public health whilst being environmentally friendly.

Perhaps it will be an app to gamify transport options, hence improve air quality; perhaps it will be a locally grown food logistics solution that encourages healthy eating...or perhaps it will be something even better!
