Young Climathon – Milano – 25.10.2019 at the Cariplo Factory Via Tortona 56, Milano Italy

Milano (Italy)
25 Oct 2019

In Milano, a Young Climathon and Climathon are happening at the same venue and partly overlapping. While the Young Climathon teams pitch their ideas in front of the jury, the Kick-Off of the Climathon for the less junior innovators starts. Very exciting.


Soft mobility tools and services to enhance safety and livability

  • Which innovative solutions could boost soft mobility, leading to an efficient environmental transition and to a safer place to live in?
  • What is soft mobility? It is a sustainable and climate-friendly approach, that includes any non-motorised transport, and use only the “human energy”. In other terms, it is a “zero impact” mobility trying to be alternative to the car’s use. 

The challenge goal is therefore to identify new mobility services, tools and actions to increase safety while ensuring a walkable city for all.

Students will plan their idea around the following items:

  1. Tools for safety, especially targeting “weak users” (such as pedestrians, cyclists, etc.) referring to active mobility
  2. Development of innovative mobility services to ensure the connections with suburban areas where the demand is weak; and meet specific needs for after-school activities of children and young people (sport, leisure, etc.)
  3. Walkable city as a vision for the future
