Factor CO2 enlivens the Climathon Galicia 2019 in Santiago de Compostela

24 October 2019 | Mitigation

Today, Friday, October 25, the Xunta de Galicia joins one more year to the fifth edition of one of the biggest events with international repercussions related to climate change: the Climathon.

The Climathon is a 24-hour meeting on climate change that takes place simultaneously in the main cities of the world, such as Paris, London, Washington, Shanghai, Sydney, among others.

The objective of the event is to sensitize the participants about the effects that climate change will have on their environment and gather their ideas regarding the adaptation and mitigation measures necessary to achieve greater resilience to climate change.

The Climathon Galicia 2019 is organized by the Ministry of Environment and Land Management of the Xunta de Galicia, and brings together entrepreneurs, students and professionals to create innovative solutions to the climatic challenges of Galicia.

On this occasion, from Galicia, we bet on the slogan "Cambiemos nós e non o clima", which means "Let's change ourselves and not the climate"

The Factor CO2 team represented by Iria Flavia Peñalva, partner and project manager, and Mariana Viesca, consultant, will be in charge of carrying out the dynamics that will seek to capture innovative ideas for each of the priority challenges addressed.

Throughout the day, from Climathon Galicia different connections will be made with other cities of the Climathon community to share experiences and advances.

The Climathon will end with the selection of the most innovative ideas, which will be shared with the global Climathon community.

Factor has 15 years of experience offering technical consulting services in the areas of adaptation and mitigation to climate change, climate finance, carbon footprint, sustainability, circular economy, among others, both for governments and international organizations, and for more than 400 Business.
