What is this?
The Net Zero Challenge is a global competition to answer the following question:
How can you advance climate action using open data?
Our aim is to identify, promote and support innovative, practical and scalable uses of open data that can:
- understand climate risks
- track climate progress
- enable informed climate action, or
- evaluate climate impact.
We want to hear from individuals, groups and organizations.
You can apply with a project you are already working on or a 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 the development of your idea.
How do I apply?
The Net Zero Challenge launches on Friday 29th January 2021.
All applications must be received by Friday 12th March 2021 at 6 pm Pacific Standard Time (San Francisco time). Late submissions will not be accepted.
Applications will be reviewed and a shortlist of applicants invited to pitch their idea to a panel of experts at a ‘Virtual Pitch Contest’.
Pitches will take the form of a public 3-minute presentation by video conference, followed by Q&A from our panel of experts. Pitches can be live, or prerecorded. Q&A will be live.
