The Net Zero Challenge is a global competition to answer the following question: How can you advance climate action using open data? The Net Zero Challenge is an Open Knowledge Foundation project. The first stage of the Net Zero Challenge is a ‘Virtual Pitch Contest’.
Some ways in which you might do this include:
- Making climate relevant data easier to discover, view and understand by the general data user;
- Creating a useful pass-through tool or API for climate-relevant data in any country or jurisdiction;
- Organizing climate data so that potential data users (including those who are less data-literate) can see what’s available, and make use of it.
- The prize for this ‘pitch’ stage of the Net Zero Challenge is $1,000 USD – to support development of your idea.
You might consider whether your idea, or project, is
- Technically achievable;
- Easy to use;
- Easily integrated or can be provided as a tool;
- Good value for money;
- Published with IP licenses that allow free use by others;
- Explainable (this is the key test of the Challenge. Can you pitch your project in three minutes to a general audience).
- They 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.
