Climate Interactive is a not-for-profit organization with its base in Washington DC, USA. It aims to find out ways to address climate change and related issues, and has a range of tools which help to provide data, analysis and simulations. It terms its work approaches as "multisolving", a way to find systemic solutions for protecting the climate while also enhancing health, equity and well-being.
Climate Interactive has five underpinnings or "roots" that inspire their work:
- 1. Dana Meadows' vision of combining scientifically-grounded analysis with advanced learning technologies. This also includes keeping a positive vision to create a sustainable world.
- 2. System Dynamics simulation modeling from MIT's Sloan School of Management.
- 3. "Open architecture sharing", making the accessible simulation models available for adaptation and extension.
- 4. Investing in contexts and settings for learning. This includes creating simulation interfaces, role-playing policy exercises and workshop approaches that generate insights from using the tools.
- 5. Engaging in "climate, sustainability, energy, and resilience strategy at national and international levels".
