Climate Hack is a virtual programme that aims to equip individuals in Asia with digital skills to develop and accelerate innovative tech-driven solutions for climate change.
Open to individuals aged 18 and above, Climate Hack connects you to a global network of like-minded individuals to collaborate and develop solutions to address climate change, and in turn, contribute to positive and sustainable development in Asia.
Top winners will be granted entry to Climate Lab, a six-month flexible incubation programme that empowers you to develop expertise, engage in peer learning, and access mentorship by industry leaders.
This is your chance to build your prototype together with a network of international collaborators and gain additional user feedback. By earning a spot in Climate Lab, you will be able to create a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) by the end of the programme.
Monorom Tchaw is a believer of more recognition, empathy and gratitude towards the people, resources and laws of the universe that enable our existence on this planet.
She accidentally founded Compost City after the project won the Impact Hub Phnom Penh’s 2019 SmartSpark competition focused on environmental solutions and got seed funding to grow the initiative.
Today, Compost City sells a ready-made balcony composting system, partly as a concrete tool for urban households to take care of their own kitchen waste, and mostly as an excuse to make people reconnect and fall in love with soil and life.
Monorom has been living in Cambodia for over 6 years. She was born and raised in France and her parents are from Cambodia. She gets excited about sharing and tasting any homemade food, cycling, soil life, Non-Violent Communication and learning about other people’s quirks and values.
