The Climate CoLab is seeking ideas for two contests, ending July 31, 2014, 11:59 PM Eastern Time:
- Youth Action: How can we enable young people to take leadership now, and make a difference against climate change? (http://ow.ly/zxXx7)
- Global plan: What combination of actions can be taken in the world as a whole to address climate change? (http://ow.ly/zxXqR )
If you submit one of the winning ideas, you’ll be able to present it before government officials, business executives, NGO leaders and scientists who can help move proposals toward implementation, as well as share it at an MIT conference this November, where a $10,000 Grand Prize will be awarded.
Top proposals in the Youth action contest will be reviewed by former heads of state, Mary Robinson (former President of Ireland) and Gro Harlem Brundtland (former Prime Minister of Norway).
