The event brought together 39 young people from 14 countries to tackle an international challenge: Can we live without cars? The young participants were tasked with developing sustainable mobility solutions that could reduce the need for cars and promote greener modes of transportation.

The hackathon was part of the Life IP Care4Climate project, which aims to encourage the use of bicycles, public transportation, and alternative modes of transport. The hackathon also introduced the Green Penguin, a combination of digital technology and gamification to promote environmental and digital awareness among residents.

Green Penguin was a big hit at the hackathon. He inspired and supported the young participants as they worked on their sustainable mobility solutions. The involvement of the Green Penguin was a great source of inspiration for the young participants, who took photos with him and shared them on social media. The Green Penguin was also a reminder of the importance of working together to tackle climate change and the role young people can play in shaping a more sustainable future.

Today, the Green Penguin project is being implemented by a consortium of organizations, namely: Iskraemeco, d.d.the City of Kranjthe City of Ljubljanathe Association DOVES-FEE Slovenia and FEE Norway who are implementing the international Eco-Schools programme. The project is co-financed by the Norwegian Financial Mechanism and Ministry of Cohesion and Regional Development. The Norwegian Financial Mechanism stands for Norway’s contribution to a green, competitive and inclusive Europe.
