Boulder is a community that houses, per capita, more tech and natural food start-ups, impact investors and entities working on behalf of our environment than anywhere in the world—boasting nearly 100 climate-oriented organizations and roughly 3,000 climate experts. Yet, with this bounty of committed community members, we lack awareness of one another, as well as cohesion and the ability to effectively align our collective agendas for greater impact. We’ve found that we are not alone; lack of collaboration is a struggle recognized in many communities, nationally and internationally and is often due to a shortage of resources—time and money—to collaborate.
This contest is seeking dynamic, self-renewing platforms that will build community engagement and help leverage and coordinate existing efforts in the community for a magnified impact. Note that we are not seeking outright climate change mitigation solutions—we have an abundance of those. Rather, our goal is to foster enhanced collaboration and greater understanding of community action partners—and identifying them is our first step. While this contest is soliciting ideas for Boulder, CO, we encourage proposals that can be adopted by communities worldwide.
