Brainstorm and advance promising, high-impact solutions to climate change with experts, practitioners, students, entrepreneurs, and many others. This session takes a bottom-up approach, where you’ll co-create the workshop agenda with other attendees, pitch your idea or interest, and form small working groups to dive deep into problem-solving. Get supportive input on your ideas, or collaborate to explore new ones. Breakouts will explore themes such as CO2 removal, the potential for blockchain carbon pricing, U.S. climate policy-making, and many more.

Speakers: Speakers will be crowdsourced from the attendees. Climate experts from MIT and beyond will facilitate sessions and fuel the conversation. The interactive workshop will be run by MIT. Top ideas will be invited to submit to the Climate CoLab online platform to receive feedback from the global network of over 85,000 people, enter annual contests, and more.
