EIT Climate-KIC to host week-long celebration of Climate Innovators
The EIT Climate-KIC Week of Action will celebrate, recognise and support the climate actions taken by citizens, youth, entrepreneurs, and change-makers all over the world via all EIT Climate-KIC programmes. The event takes place 25-31 October in the lead up to the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow.
The inaugural EIT Climate-KIC Week of Action aims to reignite the momentum to act for a healthy planet for all, connect innovators around the world, and showcase ideas and solutions created by citizens, youth, and entrepreneurs who have participated in one of our flagship programmes: Climathon, ClimAccelerator, Pioneers into Practice, Journey, ClimateLaunchpad and Young Innovators.
The week-long virtual event comprises several live discussions streamed via Zoom, YouTube and Facebook Live for participants to learn and discuss environmental challenges with climate leaders and change-makers. There will also be several opportunities to connect virtually with EIT Climate-KIC experts and pose questions to learn more about our education, acceleration and activation programmes.
