Background

The 2015 Regional Climate Action Plan Workspace is an online arena for citizens to submit and develop proposals on what can be done to address climate change. 

The current workspace accepts regional climate action plans; once the 2016 round of contests are opened, authors will be able to categorize and move their proposals into relevant contests.

What is a climate action plan proposal?

In the regional and global contests, proposals are comprised of a combination of different actions (i.e. a combination of other proposals) that, when taken together, offer a strategy for how the region or world can reduce emissions and adapt to climate change.

(This is different from other Climate CoLab contests, where proposals usually outline one specific action that can be taken to address climate change.)

What can I do with my proposal?

By submitting your proposal into the Climate CoLab, you are inviting citizens from around the world to view, share, and comment on it.  You can open your proposal for all to edit (like a Wikipedia page) or choose whom to invite as a collaborator.  You can edit it as often as you like, incorporating feedback from the CoLab community and, during the judging phases of contest, from our team of experts.  Other community members can also click a button to indicate that they support your idea, and this can provide your proposal with a following and give it more visibility.

What's next?

Once the 2016 round of contests are opened, authors will be able to categorize and move their proposals into relevant contests.  We will notify each author once this option becomes available.
