IBM crowdsources the Smarter Planet University Jam...

Eight of 10 students want universities to revamp traditional learning environments while over 90 percent want to join or start a green advocacy group on their campus. 64 percent of students believe that the world has a chance to reverse carbon emissions by 2025, and 60 percent believe that education and efficient transportation offer the best hope for sustainability of our cities. These are just a few of the findings of a remarkable crowdsourcing process held by IBM called the Smarter Planet University Jam. Nearly 2,000 students and faculty from more than 200 universities from 40 countries took part in the Jam along with top IBM experts, clients and business partners. Students around the world showed that they are eagerly seeking opportunities to work together with industry to create a Smarter Planet, and they are extremely optimistic about the future.
