2014 Proposal Workspace

What actions should be taken to address climate change?

In this workspace, you can submit your proposal on what you think should be done to address global climate change. Try out new ideas, connect with other members, recruit collaborators, share your work, engage support, and invite a global community to review and help develop your proposal.
This is just to get you started. When we release the 2014 round of Climate CoLab contests, you will be able to move your proposals from here to any relevant contest.
All submissions are welcome: technologies, policies, products, public outreach campaigns, educational programs, economic models, community projects; new ideas or improvements on something that already exists; addressing climate change mitigation, adaptation, or geoengineering; local, regional, national, or global in scope. See the What, Where, Who taxonomy for the full scope of actions, places and actors related to addressing climate change. Read more…
