This event has been postponed as part of the COVID-19 response. We hope to announce a new date for the fall semester.
MIT's Plan for Action on Climate Change is turning five years old in 2020, and the senior leadership of the Institute expects to issue an updated plan this fall. Help make the new plan as strong as it can be! At this all-day hackathon, students will dive into the different sections of the plan and imagine new ways MIT can contribute to driving down emissions and taking robust action on climate change. Now is the time to pitch your ideas for MIT to raise its climate ambitions on our campus, in our laboratories and classrooms, and in the wider world!
At the end of the day, teams will present their ideas directly to members of the MIT Climate Action Advisory Committee, responsible for making recommendations to senior leadership about the Plan for Action on Climate Change. A jury of CAAC members will announce the winners, and all ideas will be taken into consideration.
