The Net Zero Challenge is a global competition to advance climate action using open data. It is being launched by Open Knowledge Foundation with support from Microsoft and the UK’s Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office.
Our aim is to identify, promote and support innovative, practical and scalable uses of open data that:
- Understand climate risks
- Track climate progress
- Enable informed climate action, or
- Evaluate climate impact.
We want to hear from individuals, groups and organisations. You can apply with a:
- Project you are already working on, or
- Concept for something you want to develop in the future.
The first stage of the Net Zero Challenge is a ‘Virtual Pitch Contest’. The prize for this ‘pitch’ stage of the Net Zero Challenge is $1,000 USD - to support development of your idea.
Apply now by filling out this form. All applications must be received by 6pm Pacific Standard Time on Friday 12th March 2021. Late submissions will not be accepted.
