ESIP Summer Meeting 2013, Chapel Hill, NC
Speakers: Blake Burris & Chris George
Thursday, July 11, 2013

This is a presentation on Cleanweb to ESIP (Federation of Earth Science Information Partners) conference session: Sustainability in the context of Energy-Water Nexus, Climate Change and Extreme Events.

Abstract:
Capital efficient, quick-­to­-market, IT­-based solutions are driving smarter, more efficient energy use, enable the sharing economy, accelerate the adoption of clean technologies, and spread more sustainable behaviors globally. Accelerated growth in mobile, social, sensors, processing power, big data analytics, and other information technologies is creating powerful new opportunities to address the world’s critical resource challenges.
And just as information technology itself, the Cleanweb will continue to evolve in ways we can’t even imagine yet. The Cleanweb is a meme, a movement, a market, and a living, viral phenomenon − and perhaps the biggest impact and economic opportunity of our time.
In this session, we will focus on inspiring citizens to tackle constraint issues via hackathons and similar events in coordination with the public and private sector. As part of the discussion, we will outline how a global community of hackers and activists (hacktivists) are able to engage organizations ranging from well-known international organizations, like C40, to large government agencies, like New York City, to multi-national corporations, like Facebook and Twitter. Come and build with us.
