The Challenge   


Innovate to Mitigate wants students or student groups to submit ideas about how to address climate change by reducing greenhouse gases.

People around the world are working hard on this problem. To meet the big challenges we face, we need good ideas from everyone. This challenge encourages young people to unlock their immense potential for finding solutions!

Students compete for a chance to win prize money and earn recognition from peers, community, and experts.
