The Climate CoLab is giving away up to $2000 to people who help spread the word about the contests, and refer the Grand Prize Winner (to be announced later this fall). Inspired by the MIT Red Balloon Challenge, the Social Network Prize motivates members to spread the word about the Climate CoLab, not only to friends who might have ideas themselves, but also to friends who might know others with great ideas, too.
* If one of your friends you referred (or even a friend of a friend of a friend) with your unique link wins the MIT Climate CoLab’s Grand Prize this fall, then you’ll win a share of the $2,000 Social Network Prize!

The Climate CoLab: Your ideas can help combat climate change, and you might win $10,000!
In the Climate CoLab, you can work with people from all over the world to develop high impact ideas for what we can do about climate change and submit your idea to one of over a dozen contests on topics like transportation, shifting behavior for a changing climate, and many others. If you submit one of the winning ideas, you’ll be invited to present at MIT, join the Climate CoLab Winner’s Program, and eligible to win the $10,000 Grand Prize.
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 friend of a friend of a friend, etc.) wins the Grand Prize, you’ll receive a share of the $2,000 Social Network Prize!
