About the event
Reboot The Earth is planned as a social coding event that brings young computer programmers, scientists and other interested people together under the auspices of the United Nations to improve upon or build a new software program that addresses the current climate crisis.
Through a series of Tech Challenge in four continents, young people, including students will be presented with the opportunity to use open data and tech concepts to solve a local climate crisis that may be unique to each location and its community needs.
