The City of Ljubljana and CER – Center for Energy Efficient Solutions – Partnership for a Sustainable Economy of Slovenia organized Climathon intending to find bold ideas that will respond to the challenges of climate change.

Representatives of Iskraemeco and Klappir Green Solutions combined their knowledge and in-depth understanding of sustainable solutions to show how global environmental challenges can be successfully addressed and motivate residents and local businesses to help create a carbon-neutral city.

From the excellent collaboration, the idea of Green Penguin was born. The award-winning solution uses smart digital technologies and, through gamification, raising children’s awareness of environmental challenges and sustainable development, as well as the need to significantly reduce the world’s carbon footprint. Green Penguin was nominated for the Climathon Global Award and has advanced among the top five ideas in its category.
