Through the 2022 Call for Code Global Challenge you can learn about AI, cloud development and emerging technologies while you make a difference. Form a team and take on sustainability issues from improving supply chains to clean energy solutions and protection of biodiversity.

How can technology improve sustainable production, consumption, and management of resources, reduce pollution creation, and protect biodiversity to create a greener future?

As part of the 5th annual Call for Code Global Challenge, design and build an open source solution in the cloud to take on a sustainability issue.

The top Global Challenge solution receives implementation support from IBM and the Call for Code ecosystem to make a real impact in the communities with the greatest need.

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 justiceImprove 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
