An open movement to support climate action

Open Climate started as a collaboration between partners from Wikimedia, Appropedia, Open Environmental Data Project, Mozilla Foundation, Green Web Foundation, Wikimedistas de Uruguay, and the University of Notre Dame. Since late 2020, we’ve hosted a series of community calls seeking to understand where the different strands of the open movement can support the work of climate justice and action. Since then, we’ve written articles on the topic of open climate (here and here), hosted a cohort of seven Open Climate Fellows, and have written an issue brief for digital rights funders on the topic of climate justice and the knowledge commons. 

The broader Green Screen event aimed to nurture a coalition inclusive of both climate and digital rights funders and practitioners. The Open Climate track was situated inside of the continuation of conversations started during the Green Screen Berlin event, a digital rights research project commissioned by Ford, Mozilla and Ariadne, and an initial funders dialogue.
