Want to problem-solve on climate change? The MIT Climate CoLab, an online crowdsourcing platform of nearly 90,000 members, launches seven new climate contests. The Climate CoLab seeks high-impact proposals on addressing a variety of climate change problems related to topics such as energy supplies, land use change, shifting attitudes and behaviors, adaptation, carbon pricing and more. Anyone around the world is invited to submit proposals by September 10, 2017. Winners will be invited to MIT, join the Climate CoLab winners’ alumni and be eligible for the $10,000 Grand Prize—to be selected from among top proposals across contests. All award Winners and Finalists will receive wide recognition and platform visibility from Climate CoLab.
