    Community Working Group


    The Community Working Group helps the Green Software Foundation in its mission to build a trusted ecosystem of people, standards, tooling and best practices for creating and building green software. The emphasis of this group is on sharing best practices, spreading the knowledge and skills of Green Software Principles, cultivating a vibrant and diverse community of Green Software Speakers & Contributors and amplifying the impact of the Foundation through engaging meetups and events both online and offline. Our working group meets every 2 weeks on a Wednesday.


    • Facilitate broad adoption of Green Software standards and best practices through the creation of partnerships, content, events and programs.

    • Ensure diverse participation of stakeholders in the development and implementation of Green Software.

    Getting Involved

    • Are you ready to join the fun and make a difference? First, go to the GitHub discussions forum and say “Hi” in the Introductions category and/or read & comment on any of the discussions. You can also browse and join any of the lively discussions there. This is the best way to learn and get involved with this awesome working group and the wider GSF community.

    • Do you have a brilliant project idea that you want to share with the world? Then start a discussion on the GitHub Ideas board and get the interest of at least three people from 2 different member organizations. You can then contact the chairs or PM, who will add your idea to the next working group meeting agenda.

    • Our Community Working Group meets every 2 weeks on a Wednesday at 1500 UTC. We will transition to Zoom for these meetings following feedback from our members.
