California Safe Drinking Water Data Challenge 2018: Commitments
All stakeholders are invited to contribute and collaborate on the application of #opendata tools supporting safe drinking water for all. Select commitments will be highlighted through the duration of the Challenge at our October Summit + Awards Ceremony.
What is a commitment?
California Safe Drinking Water Data Challenge commitments are new, specific, and measurable actions that will be taken by community stakeholders in support of demonstrating the power of open data to improve access to safe drinking water. Examples of commitments can include:
* Hosting workshops, roundtables, hackathons, and other convenings throughout the summer to build, test, and improve prototype solutions to the Challenge
* Broadening access to additional data, technology infrastructure, tools, and resources aligned with the Challenge
* Supporting next steps from the Challenge, whether through local deployment, mentoring of participant teams, seed-funding, or other mechanisms
Please note that while the focus of the Challenge is accessibility of safe drinking water for California, commitments from partners and organizations outside of the state are welcome.
Our organizing team is available to collaborate with you in capturing ideas for commitments and identifying potential partners. Email
to set up a coordination call.
