A4CA challenges software developers to stop climate change

Solve climate change through code.

The Apps for Climate Action Contest challenges Canadian software developers to raise awareness of climate change and inspire action to reduce carbon pollution by using data in new applications for the web and mobile devices. At SAP Yaletown (910 Mainland Street) in Vancouver, on June 17, Apps 4 Climate Action (A4CA) is hosting a free event to: meet Vancouver developers and collaborate on projects, get advice from SAP engineers on data visualization and web services access, and see new sustainability solutions from SAP.

The event is designed for coders, but even if you can’t code, join anyway, because you’ll receive contest updates and you’ll have the opportunity vote on your favourite application starting on July 23. You can also come along and find some developers who could make your idea for a project come true. Register here.

The contest extended far beyond this event. Here are the remaining key dates, according to the BC government site:

  • July 15: Submission deadline
  • July 23: Public voting begins
  • Aug 20: Public voting ends
  • Sept 16: Winners announced at awards ceremony
