Climate Action is happening all over the world! Citizens are marching in cities, and watching as a young woman from Sweden takes on the global leadership at the UN to make real commitments in taking action
This movement is a global imperative AND it’s a local movement. This is why we’re so excited to host our upcoming Climathon Honolulu Hackathon in October. We realized some people might not be familiar with the Hackathon concept behind this event, so we wrote an explainer here.
TL;DR: we’re gathering the community together for a full-day of solutions building on October 26, and we’d love for you to get involved. Event registration forthcoming!
We’re also VERY excited to announce that these events will be hosted in partnership with Zero Waste Oahu! Learn more about this great organization here.
