Is an “open problem-solving platform” created by the UNEP and MIT’ Center for Collective Intelligence to inspire “a growing community of over 120,000 people” from around the world to come up with innovative and practical solutions to help address  various aspects of the climate change issue. So far, over 2000 potential solutions have been proposed. The winners, selected after official judging and public voting, receive a special invitation to attend MIT’s SOLVE Conference and present their proposals before key constituents, where a $10,000 Grand Prize is awarded.
