Sustainability 2.0 - Climate Action
Climate change is affecting people on every continent. It is disrupting national economies and affecting lives.
Saving lives and livelihoods requires urgent action to address the climate emergency. The COVID-19 pandemic is a good opportunity to change course toward Climate Action, one of the Sustainable Development Goals supported by the United Nations.
In this year’s Presidential Hackathon, we would like to invite civic hackers around the world to submit and develop your ideas for accelerating green recovery, fighting climate change, and for building transnational partnership to solve cross-border climate issues.
Here are some challenges you may be interested in solving:
How to achieve net-zero carbon emissions?
How to accelerate clean energy transformation?
How to improve the effectiveness of carbon capture and storage?
How to apply negative emission methodologies?
What are the better ways for building a carbon neutral ecosystem?
How to increase natural disaster preparedness?
How to build, or improve disaster early warning systems?
How to improve existing disaster recovery management systems?
How to facilitate resilient urban development?
What are the better ways for water resource management?
CLIMATE & OTHER SDGs
How to promote equality during the green transition?
How to ensure government transparency during the green transition?
We want your best ideas on how to use open data and technology to help ensure the delivery of Climate Action. We challenge teams to generate, analyze and prototype.
You should address at least one or more of the following:
Can you create new or better open data sources on Climate Action?
Can you find new or improved uses of existing open data and tools that support social innovation in Climate Action?
Can you create new or better tools for open data to enable Climate Action?
Here is a list of resources that might be helpful to tackle the challenge:
