The following information is for the Climate CoLab's Crowds & Climate conference, which runs all day Wednesday and Thursday morning.  For information about Solve and other HUBweek sessions, click here.  

We intentionally keep the conference fees low in order to reduce barriers to participation.  The fee helps cover the conference's food costs.
