Proposal Workspace

256days until Proposal creation ends
Enter and work on proposals outside of the contest periods.

In this workspace, you can submit proposals outside of the contest periods on what actions should be taken 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. You can also enter proposals here that can be linked to in the Global Plan contest.

When we release the next round of Climate CoLab contests, you can move your proposal from here to any relevant contest.

All submissions are welcome: technologies, policies, products, public outreach campaigns, educational programs, 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 Climate CoLab taxonomy for the full scope of actions, places and actors related to addressing climate change. Read more…
