ClimateX

CLIMATE EXCHANGE PROGAM 

Co-Created by Greenway International Foundation and ClimateX Team. Our Climate Exchange Program is a global collaborative community for young entrepreneurs to connect, share and develop cross-border collaborations.  Please make sure to read the following information carefully before applying. Also check out our values below (all of them co-created with our community) and take a moment to reflect if they are a fit for you.  Should you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at climateX@greenwayin.org

Are you passionate about addressing climate change? Do you have an idea for a climate start-up? Are you just curious about the world of climate entrepreneurship?

Greenway International Foundation and ClimateX team will provide seed-funding and leadership development to a new class of Climate Exchange Fellows every year and welcomes them into its lifelong community of leaders in the fight against climate change. 

LOGISTICS & COSTS 

ClimateX covers your travel costs to/from the venue as well as all of the conference costs for all three nights and four days (including hotel accommodation, inner city travel, food, entrance fees, etc.). However we expect you to cover your own visas, local travel to airport in your own country and from the airport to the venue in the host country.  We also request a small application contribution of 150 USD to cover our costs of thoroughly reviewing a large number of applications. For summits in Europe / MENA we also request a 230 EURO participation contribution. Please note that we will be asking people to offset the carbon footprint of their flights and we are also committed to making our events as carbon neutral and environmentally friendly as possible.  NOTE: our view on offsetting is not that it enables us to ‘guilt free’ continue our polluting behaviour and that it MUST be invested into systemic projects which tackle root causes of climate change AND combined with difficult habit changes we all have to make (reduce absolutely everything you can, offset the rest in a systemic way). Best wishes and good luck! Your ClimateX Team
