2014 Crowds & Climate conference now open for registration


Description: rowds & Climate: From Ideas to Action


Registration is now open for the 2014 Climate CoLab conference, Crowds & Climate: From Ideas to Action on November 6 & 7, hosted at MIT in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA.

The day-and-a-half program focuses on how new technology-enabled, crowd-based approaches can help in developing creative new ideas and taking meaningful action on climate change. In this year’s event, we’ll roll up our sleeves and work to figure out how to implement an innovative set of proposals to address climate change.

Plenary panels will feature world-class leaders and researchers who have successfully studied and fostered transformational change in the business sector, the policy domain, and in the work of reshaping social attitudes and behavior.

Following each panel, breakout sessions will feature the 2014 winners from contests run on the Climate CoLab, an online platform where a global community of over 20,000 works to develop creative approaches for tackling climate change. In these breakouts, attendees will engage with the authors of winning proposals and experts to explore how their ideas can effectively move forward in the world.

You’ll leave the event inspired, with connections and a program of actions you, and others, can take to make progress in the global response to climate change.
