Climathon Melbourne returns this October

Think you’ve got the answer to making Melbourne more resilient to the effects of extreme heat and heatwaves? That’s the challenge being thrown down at an upcoming hackathon focused on climate change. TAKE2 is a proud supporter of the event.

What’s a hackathon? We’re glad you asked! Hackathons bring together diverse minds to solve problems through brief but intense collaboration. They’re a great way to develop skills in public speaking, innovative thinking and teamwork. Plus they’re fun!

No less than 60 cities worldwide are taking part in this year’s event. It's free to join, you'll be coached by experts, fed, and entertained over two days. There are great prizes for the winning teams, including the opportunity to pitch your ideas to Climathon partners.

Climathon Melbourne will be held over two days on Friday 27 and Saturday 28 October at The University of Melbourne.
