Celebrate local climate action

The Climathon Global Awards is a celebration of transformative solutions tackling climate change on a local level. Since 2015, Climathon’s citizen-led movement grew to events held in 100+ cities across 50+ countries. It’s time to bring this community together.

Global stage for citizens and cities

Cities and citizens are both key to transforming our cities for the better. This event brings both to the stage with a Citizens Award and a City Award. Winners receive recognition and prize money to make a real dent in our road to a decarbonised society.

How does it work



Apply for the Citizens Award if you have a solution that helps citizens play a part in climate action.

Apply for the City Award if your city is ready to realise its vision of a climate-resilient society.
