In 2019, Scale Solutions aligned itself with Climate-KIC’s Climathon Project, hosting a pitch challenge for local solutions for the climate crisis. Winners of the pitch challenge, located in the city of Pasiq, got support to implement their solutions in Pasiq, and went went on to represent the Philipines at the Global Climathon Awards.
Climate-KIC lets citizens take climate action through ideathons and partnering with local government units.
Scale Solutions will participate in Climathon again in 2020, with online events in three different cities:
- Climathon Pasig – November 13 – 15, 2020
- Climathon Silang – November 13 – 15, 2020
- Climathon Panaque – December 16 – 18, 2020
All money raised helps fund the implementation of the winning solution for two both Pasig and Silang!
