Thank you for participating in the 2015 Climate CoLab Europe's Climate Action Plan contest, and for the time you spent in creating your entry.
The Judges have strongly considered your proposal, and have chosen to not advance it as a Finalist for this contest.
We, the Judges and contest Fellows, are truly grateful for your contribution to the Climate CoLab and for your commitment to address climate change.
We encourage you to keep developing your work and to submit it into future contests, which will open in the fall and winter of 2016. In the meantime, you can keep developing your work by transferring it to the Regional Climate Action Plan Workspace (http://climatecolab.org/web/guest/plans/-/plans/contestId/1302801); here you can re-open it, make edits, and add collaborators. You can do so by logging into your account, opening your proposal, selecting the Admin tab, and clicking “Copy proposal”. Once the 2016 contests open, you can use this same feature to move your proposal to an open contest.
We very much hope you will stay involved in the Climate CoLab community. Please support and comment on other proposals on the platform and continue to submit your ideas into our contests.
If you have questions, please contact the Climate CoLab staff at firstname.lastname@example.org
Keep up the great work. And thank you again for being a part of this mission to harness the world’s collective efforts to develop and share innovative climate change solutions.
All the best,
2015 Climate CoLab Judges
Additional comments from the Judges:
The authors propose to buy and retire emissions rights in the EU ETS to lift the price of carbon to such levels that it shifts investment plans in climate
friendly directions. This is a good idea. Furthermore it is technically and economically feasible. The cost of running the campaign is within the budget frames of civil society. Whether one will succeed in making the campaign go viral is (of course) dependent on the tactics chosen - and cannot be guaranteed. It would be good to elaborate more on how one could mobilize so many citizens to buy credits. It should be tried at a bigger level than the ongoing campaign of Sandbag.org and outside the anglo-saxon liberal market economies.
