Impact Hub Houston Puts Houston on the Global Climathon Map with First Climate Action Hackathon October 25

Houston is no stranger to extreme weather and disasters due to climate change, with three 500-year floods—and the destructive Hurricane Harvey—in recent years. The “Energy Capital of the World,” Houston has one of the highest per capita greenhouse gas emissions in the country, emitting over 34 million metric tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) in 2014 alone. To spark sustainable solutions to these challenges,  Impact Hub Houston is excited to announce it is organizing Houston’s first Climathon on October 25, 2019. All designers, developers, entrepreneurs, students, policymakers, and people wanting to improve Houston’s quality of life are invited to participate.

Impact Hub Houston Proudly Endorses the 2030 Global Agenda for Sustainable Development

Impact Hub Houston joins the 68th United Nations Civil Society Conference in committing to advance the 2030 Global Agenda for Sustainable Development. This year, we concentrate specifically on Sustainable Development Goal 11: “to make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient, and sustainable by 2030.” We do so by highlighting inclusivity, climate change, peace, economic opportunity for our youth, and the development of infrastructure and technology needed to support sustainable growth. For each of these, we affirm our beliefs, urge others to partner with us, and commit to action.

Climathon 2019: Hacking Solutions to Houston’s Climate Challenges!

Climate change is at our doorstep. Literally.
Houston has been flooded by three “500-year” storms in just three years. Our homes and communities can’t take another 497 years of this.
It’s time for action. Join us on October 25 for Houston’s first Climathon Hackathon!
All designers, developers, entrepreneurs, students, policymakers, and people wanting to improve Houston’s quality of life are welcome. The most promising ideas may go on the Global Awards in Paris in 2020!
