2015, Climate CoLab drops to one category requesting one integrated and interdisciplinary solution for several global issues.



Have only one main category for the entire 2015 Climate CoLab contest.

The objective is to address all aspects of humanity having and continuing to increase the concentrations of greenhouse gases in Earth’s atmosphere plus at least two other human concerns.  The core concerns include: development (aka poverty), freshwater, food, and energy.

Proposals will be ranked higher if they:

Demonstrate both short-term (next quarter) and long-term (a millennium) vision.

Address more core concerns and also lessor concerns identified by the proposer.

Have more disciplines covered: micro-economics of their proposal, macro-economic policies which move their proposal quicker, transportation impacts, governance issues, education, adaptations, all ways of sustainability, etc.
