Apps 4 Climate Action


Welcome to LiveSmart BC's  Apps 4 Climate Action site!

Canadian software developers respond to A4CA challenge

The Apps for Climate Action Contest challenged Canadian software developers to raise awareness of climate change and inspire action to reduce carbon pollution by using data in new applications for the web and mobile devices.

A leader in climate action, the Government of B.C. created a catalogue of its best climate and greenhouse gas emission data.

Developers used this data to design fun and innovative climate action apps.


And the winners are...

Awards for the winning apps in the Apps 4 Climate Action contest were handed out at the Vancouver Aquarium on September 16, 2010. - News Release.

The prize for Best Overall App was awarded to VELO, created by Dr. Ron Dembo (of Zerofootprint). Check out the others on the Winners page.

Additionally, the Apps 4 Climate Action initiative was also recognised as a national winner itself. The Institute of Public Administration of Canada awarded the BC public service with a silver medal in the Public Sector Leadership Awards. - News Release.
