About the MIT Climate CoLab Carbon Price Contest
This year, one of the CoLab’s flagship contest is on carbon pricing in the US. It asks entrants to come up with novel policies, new mobilizations strategies or combinations of the two that could lead Congress to successfully enact legislation that places a price on carbon emissions. Contest advisors include former Secretary of State George Shultz and former Congressional Representatives Bob Inglis and Phil Sharp.
This is a great chance for students, faculty and members of the public to think creatively and share their ideas on climate change policies. Entrants could win $10,000 and have a chance to present their ideas to senior decision makers.
The contest welcomes proposals from all groups and perspectives across the political spectrum.
