Description: MIT Solve’s 2022 Sustainability Challenges will focus on the following two areas: Protecting Ecosystem Carbon and Decarbonizing Housing. The MIT Solve community is looking for eight technology-based solutions that help communities thrive with either high-carbon ecosystems or good low-carbon homes at scale. To that end, Solve seeks solutions that: support local economies that protect high-carbon ecosystems from destruction, including forests, peatlands, and mangroves; develop new value chains for mass creation of inexpensive and low-carbon housing, including changes to materials, designs, or construction methods; and decarbonize heating and cooking systems in existing homes while improving efficiency. See website for more info.

Award: All selected solutions will receive $10,000. Additional prizes will be granted to solutions fulfilling additional parameters. 

Eligibility: Open to all.

Deadline: March 31, 2022
