2024 Youth Climathon:  11th Asia-Pacific Forum on Sustainable Development (APFSD)

Organized by United Nations ESCAP, Hackathon Thailand, Youth Empowerment in Climate Action Platform, and Global Climate Action Partnership and Asia LEDS Partnership as an associated event to the 11th Asia-Pacific Forum on Sustainable Development (APFSD), this climate action ideation will engage youth from the Asia-Pacific region (ages 18-30) to develop practical, yet innovative, solutions to accelerate climate action.

 Solutions will fall under the following categories:

  • Electric mobility.
  • Climate smart agriculture and food systems.
  • Climate resilient/adaptive cities.
  • Natural ecosystem preservation.
  • Just transition.

Selected youth will be grouped into teams of three and tasked to develop their solution over the period of one week. Then, after a pre-selection process, the top three teams will move forward for a final selection process at the APFSD. The winning team will have the opportunity to present their solution at the APFSD exhibition, with the potential for other future opportunities. The climathon will be divided into two segments: online and in-person. This portion of the climathon will take place online over the course of two days as an initial kick off followed by preparatory workshop sessions for participants. Following this, participants will develop their solutions and submit them online.
