Funding brief: In Climate CoLab contests, people from all over the world are invited to work together in developing proposals for what humanity should do about global climate change. The primary goals of Climate CoLab are to:
Study collective intelligence: Climate CoLab is a research project of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Center for Collective Intelligence (http://cci.mit.edu), and is studying how large numbers of people around the world can create detailed proposals for what humanity should do about climate change.
By helping scientists, policy makers, businesspeople, and concerned citizens to think constructively together about this problem, we believe it may be possible to create better solutions than would have been developed otherwise.
Help educate the general public about climate change: By giving large numbers of people an opportunity to work together on proposals to address climate change, based on the best current scientific knowledge, they believe they will come to understand the issues better and be better able to participate in political decision-making in their countries and communities.
Provide an open forum to discuss and select climate change proposals: Climate CoLab aims to be an open and neutral forum where members can discuss climate change proposals consistent with the best expert knowledge currently available. Proposals can be submitted into Climate CoLab contests and workspaces. Climate CoLab awards proposals that are selected by the contest Judges and the community; the project does not advocate for or endorse specific climate change solutions.
