Registration is Now Open!

Students, faculty, staff and community members of all levels are encouraged to attend and register for this year's Climathon. The 2018 Climathon is a 24 hour climate-related challenge in which interdisciplinary teams of students, community members, faculty and staff look to create solutions for sustainable housing. This is a global event happening throughout the world in different cities. This year's Climathon is held on Friday 10/26 to Saturday morning on 10/27 in the Department of Design's Duncan Anderson Gallery.

The Long Beach Challenge will focus on solutions to create sustainable housing. Specifically, solutions that will help Long Beach meet the objectives set out in the city’s Climate Action and Adaptation Plan. As the climate continues to change, there is a need to find innovative and creative solutions that reduce fossil fuel use to meet energy and transportation needs. The city of Long Beach along with other communities are addressing many challenges in developing sustainable housing that meets the needs of a growing population. Numerous approaches have been proposed to generate sustainable housing such as more high-density units, tiny houses, heating and cooling via solar energy, linking housing and transportation needs, and more.

This year’s program will be structured around the cycle of living in 24 hours.

Activities will include:

  • Team Building
  • Ideation
  • Storyboarding
  • Prototyping
  • Storytelling
  • Collaboration with other Cities
  • Data Download from the University, City, and Private Sector
  • Guest Speakers
  • Sunset and Sunrise Yoga
