In order to reach its goal of carbon neutrality by 2050, the City of Somerville, MA is seeking innovative ideas to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in all elements of urban life. Somerville, the densest city in New England, is starting a planning process to map out the path to carbon neutrality. The purpose of this contest is to identify out-of-the-ordinary ideas that the Somerville community can incorporate into a climate change plan. While some carbon neutrality strategies are well known—100% renewable energy generation, dramatic changes in transportation mode share—the City of Somerville believes that the global community can provide myriad ideas that can be studied or implemented in a city that prides itself on innovation and creativity. The winning ideas in this contest will be incorporated into Somerville’s climate change plan.
