Join 9 interdisciplinary Northwestern teams as they pitch solutions to climate change and compete for a $5,000 cash prize! 

The Northwestern Impossible Challenge was founded to find real solutions that mitigate complex global problems. The program's purpose is to build the foundation for implementing these solutions. Climate Change (global warming) has been selected as this year's target problem.
