To mark today’s Global Climate Strike, a few civil society community organisers (me, Ab Brightman, Cassie Robinson and Dama Sathianathan) have put together the beginnings of a rough compilation of resources and links around climate-relevant tech for good:

It seems there are several disparate efforts going on to map this space but no one place to find or keep track of everything.

Collating existing efforts and challenges seems timely given the urgency of the climate/ecological crisis, and the amount of activity going on to address it that people just haven’t heard about because they don’t know where to look.

The doc is open to edit so please add your contributions and thoughts to each section. If you’re striking today, add yourself to the list of sector orgs that are.

It’s very much a starting point for conversation and discussion, inspired by our regular meetup Community Announcements and the Newspeak House Election Tech Handbook.

If this is useful, let us know. If it isn’t useful, let us know what would be. Then we’ll figure out as a collective where to go from here.

Thanks in advance — we look forward to seeing how it evolves…
