Bioeconomy challenges in the Amazon region
An unique opportunity for young talents to boost your projects in the new climate economy!
UNLEASH and Youth Climate Leaders joined forces to hold a tailormade program with the main objective of mobilizing and empowering young people in the Amazon region to lead solutions that can tackle local bioeconomic challenges, promote justice and forest conservation.
Through the program, young people will gain innovative tools and skills while developing initiatives that can be presented to relevant stakeholders and can tackle climate change and biodiversity challenges.
“The world needs people engaged in favor of positive social and environmental changes. Considering the Amazon and all its potential is a fundamental part of this process. Climathon is an opportunity to connect with people who believe together with you. That's how ideas become reality!”
Yananda Lima, AMAZEN Co-founder, and winner of UNLEASH Hacks Brazil 2020
HOW DOES IT WORKS?
During the virtual Climathon, the groups participate in an immersive innovation process, facilitated by leaders trained by Unleash and YCL fellows, and collaborate on solutions to the challenges of the bioeconomy in the Amazon. The marathon connects experts, researchers, social entrepreneurs and climate leaders to prototype innovative ideas that positively impact people, the climate and the conservation of biodiversity in the Amazon rainforest.
