The Women4Climate Tech Challenge is an international contest open to women carrying out an innovative tech solution for climate action in cities. Complementary to the mentorship programme, the Challenge is opened to all C40 Cities and promotes concrete solutions with a measurable impact.
Technology and data are key agents to create and accelerate sustainable change in cities and meet the goals of the Paris Agreement. These inequalities need to be addressed with tailored actions and tools to support female entrepreneurship and address the barriers women meet in venture capital and start-ups.
In the framework of the Women4Climate initiative, the Tech Challenge is a key action for C40 to support and promote diversity and inclusion in technology and innovation, where women are largely underrepresented and provide to mayors the best women-led climate-focused tech solutions.
