Carbon Reduction App for Yale


Annual competition among alumni to reduce their carbon footprints

Structured along the lines of class giving:

  • Competition between residential colleges, class years, the Ivies, etc.
  • Provides alternative means of giving for those with less $$$:
  • Credits for efficiency (public transport, drying clothes on a line, eating less meat…) as well as spending (buying an EV, installing solar…)


  • Launch prize competition for Yale students to build the carbon tracking app
  • AYA could promote as part of the Yale Day of Service (for example)
  • Potential collaborations between: alumni (AYA and YANA), the Department of Computer Science, SOM, and Yale School of the Environment
