Climate CoLab

The goal of Climate CoLab ( is to harness the collective intelligence of thousands of people from all around the world to address complex societal problems, starting with global climate change. Inspired by systems like Wikipedia and Linux, Climate CoLab is an open problem-solving platform where a growing community of over 115,000 people -- including hundreds of the world’s leading experts on climate change and related fields -- work on and evaluate plans to reach global climate change goals. By constructively engaging a broad range of scientists, policymakers, business people, practitioners, investors, and concerned citizens, we hope Climate CoLab can help build -- and gain momentum for -- plans for achieving global climate change goals that are more detailed, actionable, and effective than any that would have otherwise been developed.
