The MIT Climate CoLab is a community of over 40,000 people, where experts and non-experts work together to develop proposals to address climate change.

Join us at Crowds & Climate, 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 tackle climate change.

This year's program is tied closely with Solve, MIT's new cross-disciplinary leadership program, which is holding its inaugural event this same week. Those attending Crowds & Climate are invited to participate in Solve's opening convocation and reception on Monday afternoon, and also will join Solve's Tuesday afternoon sessions.
