Hack4Climate was a four-day Climate/Blockchain hackathon event. Its objective was to mobilize the 'blockchain'/DLT (Distributed Ledger Technology) community for #ClimateAction, assuring that the Paris Climate Agreement is successfully implemented. Hack4Climate happened during the COP23 climate conference in November 2017 with the support of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Secretariat in Bonn, Germany. Public and private sponsors financed and organized as part of the Climate Ledger Initiative (CLI), an international, multi-stakeholder initiative at the intersection of climate and DLT.
DLT minds/practitioners from all across the world were together with one mission: to fight climate change with disruptive innovation.
Blockchain & Climate
Hack4Climate aimed to bring together Developers and Climate Experts to build innovative solutions to fight climate change.
Blockchain & Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLT)
Decentralized mechanisms enable new ways to store and share information in a trusted way.
Fight Climate Change with Data
We aim to prototype ideas that leverage Blockchain & DLT to fight climate change – to mitigate climate change, improve adaptation, and increase climate finance!

Why do we hack for climate?
Why do we want to use Blockchain Technology to fight Climate Change? Nick Beglinger, Project Leader of www.hack4climate.org, explained the event and motivation to "hack for climate"!
Climate change is the world’s biggest challenge. Blockchain holds disruptive innovation potential. #Hack4Climate brings the two together.
Hack4Climate was brought to you as part of the Climate Ledger Initiative (CLI), a multistakeholder initiative supported by Governments and innovation agencies, focused on research and innovation at the intersection of climate and DLT.
