Green "App-ortunity" for Techno Whizzes!

Join the A4MC team at the Go Green Hack Salon to hear experts discussing green ideas and sustainability concerns, keys to understanding and using the data, and possible technology solutions. Time for small group collaboration, brainstorming and app building will follow. Get a head start on your chance to win the GO Award and Innovative Illinois Award!

The Delta Institute, a Chicago-based nonprofit organization dedicated to leading the transformation to the green economy in the Great Lakes region, is sponsoring the first-ever “Green Opportunities (GO) Award.”  The GO Award will give $2,000 to the app best designed to help users find, create, sustain or share green products, practices and programs in the City of Chicago.  

In addition to the GO Award, Apps that use recently released State data such as Illinois Environmental Protection Agency data as well as Federal Environmental Protection Agency data are eligible to submit their App for the Innovative Illinois Award for a chance to win even more prize money.

Apps for Metro Chicago Illinois represents one of the largest governmental collaborative open data initiatives to date. Multiple governmental agencies and regional planning organizations have collaborated to provide 200 plus data sets with more being added regularly! A4MC is endeavoring to foster relationships between civic organizations and apps developers in order to create apps that benefit the residents of Chicago.

 

Space is limited and based on a first come first serve basis.
