Congratulations! Your proposal has been selected to advance to the Finalists round.

As a Finalist, your proposal is eligible for the contest’s Judges’ Choice award, as well as the Popular Choice award, which is determined by public voting. All Winners will be recognized and widely publicized by the Climate CoLab, and the Judges’ Choice winner -- as well as those who contributed to the plan’s sub-proposals -- will receive CoLab Points. The top point-getters will receive shares of a $10,000 cash prize! For more details on CoLab Points, please visit: http://climatecolab.org/resources/-/wiki/Main/Climate+CoLab+Points

All winners will be announced the week after the voting period ends.

You will soon receive an email from the Climate CoLab staff with details about the voting period. If you don’t receive that email within the next day, or have other questions, please contact the Climate CoLab staff at admin@climatecolab.org

Thank you for your work on this very important issue. We’re proud of your proposal, and we hope that you are too. Again, congratulations!

All the best,
2015 Climate CoLab Judges

Additional comments from the Judges:

This is an appealing proposal for a mass movement towards vegetarianism by expand. While it does not offer a complete solution to climate change -- and we would have liked to have seen this idea as one effort inside of a larger global plan -- the simplicity of the idea for a climate literacy initiative and its execution are the strengths of this proposal.

We see that it would be challenging to implement globally given varying cultural, geographic, and other differences around diet. Monitoring and evaluating the impact would also be difficult, given the number of actors involved.

We appreciate that this proposal has been revised substantially since the semi-finalist round, and, after selecting some different sub-proposals, was able to much more clearly articulate how the sub-proposals fit together into the concept.

We also appreciated the images and infographics that were added, which strengthen the overall presentation.

Congratulations! Your proposal,"Reducing Footprints by Reducing Animal Consumption," in the MIT Climate CoLab Global Climate Action Plan contest, has been selected to advance to the Semi-Finalists round.

You will be able to revise your proposal and add new collaborators if you wish, from now until November 4, 2015, at 11:59pm midnight Eastern Time. We’ve also included feedback that will be posted under the Evaluation tab of your proposal. Please incorporate this feedback in your revisions. As you make revisions, we recommend you save an offline copy as a backup.

At the revision deadline mentioned above, your proposal will be locked and considered in final form. The Judges will undergo another round of evaluation to ensure that Semi-Finalist proposals have addressed the feedback given, and select which proposals will continue to the Finalists round.

Finalists will be eligible for the contest’s Judges Choice award, as well as for public voting to select the contest’s Popular Choice award. The Winners will be recognized and widely publicized by the Climate CoLab. Global climate action plans include ideas from all the people who contributed to the sub-proposals, not just those who created the integrated proposal itself. To recognize all these contributions, a winning integrated proposal receives CoLab Points that are distributed among all these people. The top point-getters will receive shares of a cash prize of $10,000. For more details on CoLab Points, please visit: http://climatecolab.org/resources/-/wiki/Main/Climate+CoLab+Points

Thank you for your great work and good luck!

All the best,
2015 Climate CoLab Judges

Judges comments:

1. Good idea, but not clear how to implement.

2. This idea is around for sometime--whether it will significantly reduce the emissions trajectory is not well established.


Fellows comments:

Congratulations, and please continue to revise, strengthen, and proofread your proposal by the Nov 4 deadline.

Please address practical implementation ideas, as well as differences and challenges that may arise in attempting to spread this idea through various parts of the world, given varying cultural, geographic, and other differences around diet.

A major component of this contest, is combining and integrating regional sub-proposals into a larger whole,so please continue to focus on this area, and expanding your description of the integration of the various sub-proposals.
