What is the Taiwan Presidential Hackathon?

The Presidential Hackathon is an initiative designed by the Taiwanese government to encourage data owners, data scientists and field experts working together to accelerate the optimization of public services.

Launched in 2018 by the Taiwan Presidency as a domestic challenge, the Taiwan Presidency then expanded the initiative to include an international track in 2019 where participants from around the world were invited to propose open data solutions for delivering a better and more sustainable environment worldwide.

The Challenge

Climate change is affecting people on every continent. It is disrupting national economies and affecting lives.

Saving lives and livelihoods requires urgent action to address the climate emergency. The COVID-19 pandemic is a good opportunity to change course toward Climate Action, one of the Sustainable Development Goals supported by the United Nations.

In this year’s Presidential Hackathon, we would like to invite civic hackers around the world to submit and develop your ideas for accelerating green recovery, fighting climate change, and for building transnational partnership to solve cross-border climate issues.
