Challenge / Goal

The Dublin Region Climate Action Challenge sought innovative ideas and applications that used open data to drive and support climate action. Participants had an opportunity to showcase their work, achieve recognition, attain prizes and help drive climate action in Dublin and beyond. Entry to the competition was open to individuals and groups of all ages and backgrounds. 

The Challenge organisers were keen to see solutions that assist climate action activity and support the objectives of the 4 Dublin Local Authority Climate Change Action Plans.


We were looking for solutions which use available data for analyses, applications, tools, maps, etc. to drive or support climate action in some shape or form. 

Seven shortlisted projects were given two months to develop tools, dashboards, analyses and applications which address the climate crisis. On September 14th, award winning Climatologist Prof. John Sweeney kicked-off an online showcase webinar in which the seven participants pitched their solutions- demonstrating they support climate action and how stakeholders and the wider public can engage with them. The top three solutions were then awarded prizes. 

Citizen participation

The Challenge relied on participation, with citizens applying with their own innovative ideas to the many challenges faced across the Dublin region.
