This panel was convened at the MIT Crowds & Climate conference, held November 6-8, 2013, at the MIT campus. It was hosted by the Climate CoLab, an MIT project that seeks to crowdsource citizen-generated ideas on a range of climate change challenges. 

The conference explored the role new technology-enabled approaches -- such as crowdsourcing, social media, and big data -- play in developing creative new ideas and taking action on climate change. Focusing on the potential of bottom-up approaches could enable more sustainable business practices, influence policy makers, and reshape public attitudes and behavior.
