You may be familiar already with Hackathons…well… events that allow creative people and entrepreneurs to develop a product or an idea to solve a challenge. So what is a Climathon? It is simply a Climate Hackathon! And the best part of it is that Malta will have the very first one ever with the theme – Cultivating Sustainable Tourism in Malta.

MCAST, together with the Ministry for Environment, Climate Change and Planning and the Climate Action Board is bringing Climathon to Malta!
