Solve CoLab is the community platform for Solve, a live meeting series and online community whose mission is to discover, evaluate, and advance solutions to global problems, or challenges.
Solve CoLab is a forum in which individuals and groups can convene and communicate, to submit solutions to these challenges, to work together on these solutions, and to provide updates on their progress. Sometimes Solve calls a community into being, but often it draws together groups that are not yet connected but are already working on the same problem.
Solve and Solve CoLab are organized around exploring and devising solutions to challenges that fall under four broad categories, or pillars, outlined below:
Learn: Provide quality education to anyone with the will to learn, anywhere.
Cure: Leverage innovations and research to make healthcare affordable and universally available.
Fuel: Double energy and food production and halve carbon output.
Make: Provide the infrastructure and economic opportunity to support the earth’s nearly 8 billion people.
Exploring the possibilities of collective intelligence
The Solve CoLab platform is based on work done for Climate CoLab, an online crowdsourcing platform developed by the MIT Center for Collective Intelligence (CCI). Climate CoLab has convened a growing, global community of over 75,000 experts and non-experts to work together to develop and select innovative and effective proposals on how to tackle different aspects of the climate change problem.
Solve & CCI are working closely together to develop and advance methodologies for large-scale problem-solving. Learn more about CCI's work.
