Proposal: Air Quality InQuiry (AQIQ): Community-led Greenhouse Gas Measurements Contest: Fostering Climate Collaboration in Boulder, CO 2016 Thank you for your contest entry. Thank you for your contest entry. We appreciate your willingness to share your ideas and also the time and effort you put into developing a proposal and submitting it to the contest. We have reviewed your proposal and found that it contained intriguing elements; however, have chosen not to advance it to the next round of competition. We encourage you to keep developing your idea. Transfer your proposal to a Workspace to re-open it, make edits, add collaborators, and even submit it into a future contest. You can do so by logging into your account, opening your proposal, selecting the Admin tab, and clicking “Move proposal.” We welcome you to stay involved in the Climate CoLab community: support and comment on proposals that have been named Finalists, and vote during the public voting period to help select the contest’s Popular Choice Winner. Climate CoLab will be opening more contests throughout the year and you are welcome to submit your proposal to those contests as well. Keep up the great work. We hope that by working together, we all can create solutions that wouldn’t otherwise be possible. Sincerely, Contest Fellows If there are additional comments from the Judges & Fellows, they will be included below.

Thank you for your submission! Unfortunately, it feels like this isn't getting to the root of the collaboration issue in Boulder. Best of luck in the future!

Thank you for this excellent proposal. This sounds like it could be a powerful way to strengthen Boulder's environmental awareness and activity. The main suggestion I'd make is to think about the possibilities for connectivity beyond the library and the schools. How can this effort be designed in such a way as to strengthen Boulder's broader environmental movement? What other organizations might be interested in using these tools? And how can those tools help motivate not just greater awareness, but the social mobilization necessary for change?

This proposal would benefit from being more integrated into existing efforts, such as the schools' sustainability efforts (rather than just science education) and the campaign to make Boulder carbon neutral. While education alone is a powerful force for change, this proposal would be stronger if it were better integrated with other strategies and organizations as well.

To address:
how the proposal creates community engagement and connectivity. What would people do with the information?
