OpenIR is a finalist in OpenIDEO’s Climate Resiliency Challenge.

We almost got the band back together! OpenIDEO’s challenge to propose solutions for climate-related resiliency in urban slum environments provided a great opportunity for the team to work with Juhee Bae at MIT, Wahyu Dhatmika of Indonesia’s Tempo Magazine, and Harry Surjadi, the co-developer of the new TempoSMS platform. The project was not chosen for funding, but the application process allowed the team to brainstorm some new ways and learn about some new technologies that can help the Tempo team in Indonesia.
