You’re invited to engage with a diverse group of stakeholders on Radical Collaboration for Climate Change: Digital Solutions to Tracking Progress. The event will feature innovative digital solutions from the Open Climate Collabathon, a two-week global hackathon with participants from LA to Melbourne. We aim to connect members from the tech community and key climate stakeholders to discuss how we can radically collaborate and realize some of these proposed solutions moving into 2020 – a critical year in which the Paris Agreement comes into force and the world will be working towards demonstrating progress at the 2023 Global Stocktake. The event is hosted by Data-Driven EnviroLab, in partnership with Yale Open Lab and the Climate Chain Coalition.

Location: AC Hotel Marriott Feria, Via de los Poblados, 3, 28033 Madrid (a short <20-min walk from the IFEMA or take one of our free shuttle buses)

Time: 4:30 – 7:00 pm, followed by a networking reception.

We will have 2 free shuttle buses to take participants from the COP-25 IFEMA front entrance to the Marriott, leaving at 4:30 and 4:45 pm.

RSVP required, free to attend. No official COP-25 Registration required.
