When facing a challenge unlike anything in the history of human civilization, we need solutions that are, in a word, innovative. Innovate to Mitigate is a new kind of climate action to address this challenge. This website supports you and your team as you compete to create a new and scalable way to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere. You may invent a more efficient way to generate clean energy, or find a more effective way to save energy on a large scale. You may even figure out how to pull CO2 out of the air and lock it away from the carbon cycle.
The goal is to think outside the box. You will begin with something that inspires you, and that we know works at least at some level. You might investigate how it could work at a larger level. For example, take this cool prototype from Treehugger:
