Along with the MIT Solve Opening Convocation

Monday, October 5, 2015, 1:00 pm - 6:30 pm


The MIT Climate CoLab is an online community of over 45,000 people, where experts and non-experts work together to develop proposals for how to address climate change.

Thank you for joining us at Crowds & Climate, the Climate CoLab's event on the MIT campus, where we bring together leaders from businesses, non-profit organizations, governments and communities around the world to advance an online global problem-solving effort to more effectively tackle climate change.

This year's program was tied closely with Solve, MIT's new cross-disciplinary leadership program, which was holding its inaugural event that same week.  Those attending Crowds & Climate were invited to participate in Solve's opening convocation and reception on Monday afternoon to kick off the event, and joined Solve's Tuesday afternoon sessions.  Please see the program for more details.
