Description

In the Call for Code Global Challenge, you can join the fight against climate change by building and deploying open source solutions in the cloud. By participating, you’ll build critical skills for yourself and your teams and deploy solutions to help communities across the globe.

Built on open source principles, the Call for Code Global Challenge asks developers and problem solvers to form teams and develop solutions that address specific problems in unique, clearly demonstrable ways. The most successful solutions are those scoped to have the greatest community impact with the smallest technological footprint. Last year’s winner Agrolly is a perfect example, with its mobile application to help small farmers better understand what to plant, based on weather patterns and crop characteristics.

According to the United Nations, “The impacts of climate change are global in scope and unprecedented in scale. Without drastic action today, adapting to these impacts in the future will be more difficult and costly.” Given the far-reaching and devastating effects of climate change, we have divided the 2021 Global Challenge into three sub-themes:

  • Clean water and sanitation
  • Zero hunger
  • Responsible production and green consumption

Eligibility

Teams competing for the University Challenge must ensure that all team members are enrolled in an accredited institution of higher education.
