Are you a problem-solver? An entrepreneur? A thinker, a tinkerer? Join the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's workshop that brings together SXSW Eco solvers to brainstorm and advance promising, high-impact solutions to the world’s greatest challenges. Using an Open Space/unconference format, you’ll co-create the workshop agenda with other attendees, pitch your idea or interest, and form small working groups where you can dive deep into problem-solving. Get supportive input on your ideas, or collaborate to explore new ones. Breakouts will explore themes such as CO2 removal, the potential for blockchain carbon pricing, U.S. climate policymaking and many more.
Top ideas will be invited to submit to MIT’s Climate CoLab and Solve CoLab competitions, where they can receive implementation support and more.
