Scottish Climate Change App Competition – £50K Up For Grabs

The competition is open to developers and creators with *some* affiliation to Scotland and is looking for innovative, original and new ideas for tackling climate change.

Scotland has committed to a 42 percent reduction in carbon emissions by 2020, so new ideas an innovation are vital to help the country achieve its objectives.
