December 3 - 4, 2022
Climate change is among the most urgent issues of our time.
In fact, the warmest seven years on record have all been since 2015. Up to one million species are at risk of extinction due to climate change. Hundreds of millions of poeple will be displaced from their homes because of it. The Climate Action Tracker anticipates a 4 degrees increase in global temperatures by 2100 if we keep with our current trajectories… The delicate balance that we have on Earth is at risk.
So, what do we do about it? The need for action & innovation is more urgent than ever. And to make headway in addressing the problem, it will not be a “magic bullet” that solves everything, but rather the joint efforts of engineers, artists, coders, educators, politicians, business-people & others coordinating with a variety of diverse solutions to make both individual and collective impact.
Our challenge: Can you (together) create that next key solution to our climate change dilemma?
It can be locally-focused, it can be globally-minded. It can be an art concept, a new machine, a code-heavy app, a proposal for an event, a plan to conserve an ecosystem, an education campaign or more. It can be a business, a non-profit concept or anything in between. It can be many things. As long as it’s built with the planet and its people in mind, working to address the climate crisis in its own unique way.
Details will be finalized closed to the date, with some key logistics shared:
A final note that the submission itself with be a four-minute video, with finalists then being invited to present their solutions live at a finals time TBD, likely during the week following the event!
