Contests for Combating Climate Change Are Now Open

Climate CoLab, part of the MIT Center for Collective Intelligence, launched seven contests whose winners will be invited to MIT to share their work and will become eligible for a $10,000 grand prize. Thomas Malone, director of the center, says, “People from all walks of life—for example, policymakers, artists, engineers, students, or retired professionals, among others—all have valuable insights to offer and are invited to enter the contests on their own or with a team. Alternatively, they are welcome to form teams with other members of the Climate CoLab community.”

The contests will focus on the areas of land use (agriculture, forestry, and waste management), transportation, buildings, carbon pricing, energy supply, adaptation, and shifting attitudes and behaviors toward climate change.

For more information, read the press release.
