From March-September 2021, a pilot series of "OpenClimate" calls will be convened with the aim of understanding the relationship of the open movement to the climate crisis. Each call will be facilitated by one of the conveners and will start with 1-2 quick talks meant to prompt additional conversation. If you are interested in giving a short talk under one of the topics below or would like to propose a future topic for these calls, please use the talk page.

A link to join each call will be available several days prior and posted on this page. You can also see the call notes here.

About OpenClimate[edit | edit source]

Who's behind this? In Fall 2020 Evelin Heidel and Alex Stinson facilitated a panel, "Open Questions in a Warming World" at the Creative Commons Summit. There they met Shannon Dosemagen. The three later connected and got excited by the idea of starting to understand who from the open movement is working on the climate crisis, what they're up to, and how the Open movement can be strong allies on Climate-related work. Teaming up with Luis Felipe Murillo, Michelle Thorne and Emilio Velis in early 2021, the small group started moving plans forward on doing a pilot series of "OpenClimate" calls, mapping the space, and collaborating on a session at the March 2021 MozFest.
