Whether you're hoping to get a clearer idea of what solutions can address this year's challenge theme of behavior change, you've got an idea that needs feedback and development, or you'd like to meet potential team members for your project, this event will give you opportunities to get creative and get connected.

What is an Ideathon?
Like a hackathon, an ideathon is an all-day event where participants form teams, learn from experts, and generate ideas for conservation solutions.
While a hackathon focuses on rapidly building a prototype, our ideathon focuses on helping you iterate until you reach your best, most impactful idea.
Our goal is that you walk out of this event with a strong idea that you can directly submit to the Con X Tech Prize for a shot at a $3,500 prototyping prize.
This event is for you, if…
- You want to gain a better understanding of how to use behavior change in a product.
- You want to submit to the Con X Tech Prize, but haven’t found the right idea.
- You have an idea, but want to iterate on it and learn tactics to take it to the next level.
- You want to find a team or new teammates to work together on a conservation challenge.
If you already have a well-developed idea that you are planning to submit to CXTP, you’re still welcome to join! You may learn something that helps your project idea. However, this ideathon will most benefit those people who do not yet have an idea to submit, want to join a team, find teammates, or are still in very early stages of their idea.
