Andrés Quijano, from Argentina, is one of 14 finalists in the contest "Apps for Climate", that recognizes the most innovative applications developed on World Bank indicators.
It has not been so long since Quijano received an email from her mother telling him about the World Bank competition and the ceremony that will be held in Washington DC
on June 28th.
In about four months, Quijano created the application Ecofacts, submitted it to the contest on the closing day, and was elected one of the three finalists from Latin America (along with Colombia and Bolivia).
"Ecofacts is a software application that aims to raise awareness on climate change through the comparison of a country with the region to which it belongs and the rest of the world," said Quijano, who as a child produced compost in the garden of his home.
The site shows the comparative information in a chart and the user can change the display of some indicators.
