Speaking with Katherine from MIT the other day gave me great insight into understanding what it’s going to take to make this Coalition more successful!

While she’s been working away on the MIT/Yale project, studying almost 200 different sustainability projects across universities–she’s also got some wise words about the Coalition.

  • Coalition teams had varying degrees of involvement–for future development, how can we incentivize the teams to contribute equally to the idea-sharing and the implementation of the project?
  • The involvement of the administration at the University is crucial–Katherine says it’s one of the reasons why the MIT/Yale project succeeded.
  • There was a lot of confusion about what it meant to be a part of the Coalition–looking forward to the second year of the Coalition, we should look into making it clear what joining the Coalition involves!

Will definitely follow up on these suggestions. Thanks, Katherine!
