The events of Climathon Egypt are implemented in 12 governorates in the Arab Republic of Egypt, and this is for the first time, as in the previous versions of Climathon, the activities were limited to the Greater Cairo Governorate, while in this fourth version, which is hosted by Egypt, the activities will take place in 12 governorates.
Climathon is an initiative that is implemented in many countries of the world under the auspices of the European Union, and through which many activities are implemented based on educating urban residents about climate changes through many youth activities in particular and family activities in general, which provide a path for action and interaction, especially as it is an opportunity for citizens to participate in Generate ideas that address local climate challenges.
The main goal is to involve citizens, especially youth, women and children, in finding local ideas and solutions to face the challenges of climate change and raise awareness, to work to reduce climate change and its effects on the current and future situation in light of climate change, and to rethink urban cities and rural areas and their facilities in which we live and the future in which we live. We want it as citizens.
Claython sheds light on local innovators who take into account mechanisms to enable climate action in order to reach a mature understanding of the problems facing their governorates locally, and thus come up with effective and innovative solutions that focus on the basic principles of the environment, sustainability, social responsibility and practical application.
Climathun provides the opportunity for collaboration between innovators and creators from target groups and decision makers. And also connecting promising talents and ideas with many investors as well as business incubators to get a greater chance of implementation on the ground, which is crucial to the current climate situation that we are facing all over the world.
There is no doubt that the Climathon Initiative will make a significant impact both locally and globally, benefiting climate action, society and the environment.
Our Land Climate Foundation always works on the participation of women. We aim to improve the participation of Egyptian women in general in all projects implemented by the Foundation because we believe that the participation of women is very vital in achieving our desired goals. The Foundation also works on developing children’s skills and providing them with the necessary information and knowledge to increase their awareness. And their active participation through various activities and events, especially since they are the youth of the future and those who will really suffer from the consequences of climate change.
