Call for Code Global Challenge 2022 for Developers ($285,000 prize)

The Call for Code Global Challenge 2022 is now accepting applications. The Call for Code Global Challenge is a competition that challenges developers and problem solvers to create long-term open source solutions to the world’s most pressing social and humanitarian problems. This year’s competition will focus on critical global sustainability challenges.

You may learn about AI, cloud development, and emerging technologies while making a difference by participating in the Call for Code Global Challenge. Form a group and tackle challenges like strengthening supply chains, finding clean energy solutions, and protecting wildlife.

About the Challenge

How can technology help build a greener future by improving sustainable resource production, consumption, and management, reducing pollution, and protecting biodiversity?

Design and construct an open source cloud solution to address a sustainability issue as part of the 5th annual Call for Code Global Challenge. They’re encouraging developers and problem solvers to use open innovation to create technology solutions that address specific global sustainability issues in novel, provable ways. The winning Global Challenge solution will receive implementation help from IBM and the Call for Code ecosystem, allowing it to make a significant difference in the most vulnerable communities.

Your Global Challenge solution should address one of the diverse challenges aligned to sustainability:

  • Build effective and efficient ways to quantifiably promote, preserve, and protect biodiversity
  • Reduce global food insecurity through, as examples, improvements to distribution or sustainable farming practices
  • Remove barriers to equal education access and job opportunities to further environmental justice
  • Improve the ability to measure, analyze, or take decisive action on carbon emissions
  • Improve access to affordable and reliable clean energy
  • Improve supply chain transparency and traceability to bring fast and accurate visibility to sustainability issues where they arise
  • Address issues of water scarcity and quality
  • Reduce volume of and demand for materials that create the biggest waste footprint (plastics, electronics, food, textile), and encourage reuse/recycle opportunities
