Promising Ideas for Mitigation

For basic information about climate change, e.g., the underlying physical phenomena, impacts of climate change, or an overview of mitigation strategies, visit our primer on climate change.

To avoid drastic climate change, humans need to implement a variety of mitigation strategies to reduce emissions. Now your team can contribute to ideas for mitigation when you Innovate to Mitigate.

One important strategy that can mitigate climate change is to increase biodiversity. These Promising Ideas should give you an idea of what might be possible.  Hopefully they will help you spark new ideas of your own!  

Ask yourself: 

  • How does this idea work? 
  • Is there a part of this that we could design or adapt? 
  • Could we scale it down to build a prototype? 


The students are really enjoying working on the project. There have been some failures, but they've made significant gains in problem solving, team work, communication, empathy and other process skills."
