Title of Challenge
Use big data to reduce transport emissions
Description of city challenge
In Toronto, North America’s fourth largest city, participants in the Climate-KIC Climathon will use big data to reduce carbon emissions from the city’s transportation grid.

The government of Canada’s Ontario province has committed to an ambitious carbon reduction strategy. Transportation alone was responsible for 34 per cent of Ontario’s carbon emissions in 2012. During the Climathon event, participants will use big data in an effort to reduce the carbon emissions from the Toronto transportation grid – public transport, private, commercial and other vehicles – by 5 per cent, while keeping the solutions revenue-neutral.

Glen Murray, climate change minister for the province of Ontario, will welcome participants at the event.

The jury will be rewarding the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place teams and there will be a special Climate Hero prize for the largest reduction of emissions as well as a People’s Choice award. The 1st place team will receive three months of desk space at DevHub for up to 3 people (value of $4000!), an offer to pitch at the next HackerNest Tech Social and an awesome trophy to take home. The 2nd and 3rd places as well as the Climate Hero and People’s Choice winners will take home a trophy and some really sweet swag from our sponsors.

Toronto’s Climathon organisers MaxQ, Canada’s first space-data startup accelerator, and Lighthouse Labs, which was founded to educate and transform budding talent into artisan crafters of technology, are providing participants with data sets from the European Space Agency’s Copernicus satellite network, as well as from NASA and the City of Toronto’s Open Data Team.
