About the Challenge
Geovation runs Challenges to address specific problems with communities, which may be satisfied, in part, through the use of geography. These Challenges are open to entrepreneurs, developers, community groups, Government and individuals. The Challenge focuses on finding innovative and useful ways of using geographic information, including open data and tools, to build new ventures that will generate social, economic and environmental value.
Starting in 2009, our Challenges have focused on building local resilience within communities against real problems that need collaboration and design thinking across all sectors of the economy (public, private, civil society and individuals) to address them.
For details of our previous challenges and winners between 2009 and 2015, take a look at our Challenges booklet (PDF).
