The clock is ticking. Build solutions that fight back
In a few short weeks the world has changed. COVID-19 (Coronavirus) has spread across the world with unprecedented effect and now has the potential to become the greatest crisis of modern times.
From its inception, Call for Code was created to take on society’s most pressing issues, which is why we are expanding this year’s Challenge to address both climate change and COVID-19, two urgent crises that have the power to compromise our health, our planet, and our survival. We’re asking developers, data scientists, and problem solvers to answer the Call.
We will be looking for open-source solutions to that address three main COVID-19 areas:
- Crisis communication during an emergency
- Ways to improve remote learning
- How to inspire cooperative local communities.
On Climate Change
In 2020, Call for Code is aligned to the UN 75th anniversary global conversation theme of climate change, with a focus on:
- Water sustainability
- Energy sustainability
- Disaster resiliency
