#LevelUp with @The Climate Vertical!

In the week 14th-18th of June 2021 we will conduct The Hackathon: Climate Challenges, organised by The Climate Vertical and the Romanian climate community.
We want participants and registered teams to create a project or prototype that innovates or improves an existing solution to a climate challenge. On the site you will find each challenge described.
Now is the time to find solutions, develop, test and then implement them and be part of the solution that solves a challenge.
Who can participate?
  • Startups or founders
  • NGO representatives
  • representatives of public institutions
  • companies that want to contribute to the positive impact
  • people passionate about #climatechange
If you find yourself in one of the above categories, you can come up with innovative ideas during the Hackathon and team up with people as passionate, dedicated and creative as you.
How can you participate?
Until June 9th, you can register .
A. As a participant (alone or with a friend) and you choose to solve one of the challenges we selected in the Open Call for Challenges.
The list will be published between May 17th-20th.
B. Do you already have a team or startup formed around a challenge (from the list or another)?
