Why take on climate change?

Leading experts explain why climate change is one of the most urgent issues of our time and how technology can help. Get an overview of the Call for Code climate change starter kits, quick-start guides to help you understand the scope of the problems and start building applications in minutes. The starter kits are focused on three areas where technology can have the greatest impact: water sustainability, energy sustainability, and disaster resiliency.

On its 75th anniversary, the United Nations is demanding a ‘global reality check’ and has launched the largest-ever global conversation on how to address the world’s most pressing issues such as climate change. Heeding the UN’s rallying cry to build the future we want, IBM is joining forces with key UN agencies and world leaders to help tackle the climate crisis.

Following two successful years, the 2020 Call for Code Global Challenge encourages and fosters the creation of practical applications built on open source software including Red Hat OpenShift, IBM Cloud, IBM Watson, IBM Blockchain, and data from The Weather Company. The goal is to employ technology in new ways that can make an immediate and lasting humanitarian impact in communities around the world. In this session, we will introduce you to resources you need to take on climate change.

Don’t forget to accept the Call for Code Global Challenge.
