MIT Climate: Logo Design Competition
MIT Climate: Science & Action
MIT has launched a dynamic new Institute website, the MIT Climate portal, climate.mit.edu. A partnership between the MIT Environmental Solutions Initiative (ESI) and MIT Open Learning, MIT Climate fulfills a core objective of MIT’s 2015 Plan for Action on Climate Change — the development of a new climate site that seeks to share what we know and learn from others.
For the MIT community, MIT Climate will be a platform for raising the visibility of programs and latest research on climate change; sharing diverse perspectives; finding other climate activities on campus; engaging new audiences; and driving more traffic to existing MIT sites. For the public, the portal will be an interactive resource for learning and acting, and a window into all of the excellent work happening at MIT on climate change every day. Read more about the portal.
WHO: MIT community (students, researchers, faculty, staff, alumni)
WHAT: Logo design competition for “MIT Climate” online portal
WHEN: Competition closes Wed. Oct 17, 2018, 6 PM ET
