Call for Code Global Challenge

Code Global Challenge

The Call for Code Global Challenge calls on you to create practical, effective, and high-quality applications based on cloud, data, and artificial intelligence that can have an immediate and lasting impact on humanitarian issues.

Building on the success of the 2018 competition, the Call for Code Global Challenge 2019 again asks teams of developers, data scientists, designers, business analysts, subject matter experts and more to build solutions that significantly improve preparedness for natural disasters and accelerate relief when they hit.

This year’s Challenge also introduces an emphasis on individual health and community well-being. This includes solutions that can reduce the risk of disease, improve access to data and the availability of resources, and address the mental health needs of those impacted before, during, and after disasters.

One team will win the second annual Call for Code Global Prize, supported by the United Nations Human Rights Office and the American Red Cross.

The winner and runners up will also earn several other awards that foster adoption of their application as an open source project through The Linux Foundation to scale its impact and accelerate its deployment in areas of greatest need.

In addition, the grand prize winner will have an opportunity to meet mentors and investors to discuss potential funding for the idea and they will receive deployment support through the Code and Response™ initiative from IBM.
