Welcome to the monday.com climate change app challenge!
The monday.com climate change apps challenge is a contest bringing developers around the world together with the mission to build apps that can help teams and organizations take an active role combating climate change.
All apps should be built on monday.com Work OS— a no-code/low-code platform that allows teams and organizations to build their dream work software by combining flexible building blocks such as integrations, automations, or apps. For this challenge, you’ll be tasked with building an app for the monday.com’s easy-to-build-for Apps marketplace, putting your climate change app into the hands of monday.com’s 152K customers.
This challenge is meant to empower more app developers to use their tech skills to improve climate change awareness within teams and organizations.
The reason why the monday.com team decided to run a green app challenge this year is because work technology can give teams the tools they need to address climate challenges, and help organizations be proactive about bringing awareness and fighting climate change through the tech they use every day.
As a Work OS built for every team, in every industry, and in every region — there’s no better work software than monday.com to reach and impact a global audience to make an environmental change for the better.
For this climate change app challenge, we encourage you to partner with researchers, students, and sustainability-centric companies and non-profits to better understand the climate change challenge and guide you to build something that can really make a societal and/or environmental impact.
Climate change can be a daunting challenge, so consider the elements of climate change your app can focus on including - but not limited to - pollution, global warming, waste disposal, ocean acidification, loss of biodiversity, deforestation, acid rain, public health, fires, fog, flooding, and earthquakes.
We also suggest you get creating in harnessing the incredible amount of built-in monday.com Work OS capabilities such as data analysis, board views, filters, notifications, automations, and integrations. These no-code elements, in combination with your low-code app, are what will set your app apart from the competition.
While this is do-good challenge, there are also some amazing perks and prizes awarded to participants. Not only will your app be eligible for a featured spot in our monday apps marketplace which is accessible to over 152,000 customers — but we are giving $160,000 in prizes to the winning apps!
