Introducing ClimateX: An open online experiment in climate action at MIT


Developed in partnership with the MIT Office of Digital Learning, MIT Office of Communications,
and MIT Center for Collective Intelligence, two MIT alums & Climate CoLab winners, Rajesh Kasturirangan and Dave Damm-Luhr, recently launched a new open online experiment aimed at turning climate knowledge to action called ClimateX.

Based on their winning proposal in Climate CoLab’s MIT Alumni contest, the team is prototyping a peer-to-peer platform for climate education and action, through an 8 week pilot project. The initiative, which began earlier this month, aims to provide a forum for the MIT community & alumni, and learners from around the world to connect and drive climate action ideas forward. In beta, the platform features:

·         A weekly webinar series, led by MIT grad students and alums, on a range of climate topics;

·         A simple digital community where you can form groups and discuss; and

·         A challenge platform where you can propose, develop and get feedback on real solutions — local or global — to specific climate issues.

Join the ClimateX platform to learn more and get updates, and connect with
the greater MIT community & alumni in advancing climate action.
