Win $10,000 with MIT'€™s Climate CoLab Competition

04 June 2013

MIT's Climate CoLab: Deadline extended to June 15

Your ideas can help combat climate change, and you might win $10,000

At MIT'€™s Climate CoLab you can work with people from all over the world to develop ideas for what we can actually do about climate change.

If you submit one of the winning ideas, you’ll be able to present it to the media, government officials, business executives, and scientists at an MIT conference on November 6-7, where a grand prize of $10,000 will be awarded.

Even if you don'€™t have new ideas yourself, you can help improve other people's ideas and support the ones you find most promising.

And that's not all: If you refer one of your friends or colleagues to the contest via Facebook, Twitter or e-mail, and one of them—or a friend of a friend, or a friend of a friend of a friend, etc.— wins the Grand Prize, you’ll receive a share of a $2,000 Referral Prize.

Current contests address low-carbon energy, building efficiency, adaptation, geoengineering, and many other topics. Entries are due June 15.
