2020 OPEN CLIMATE COLLABATHON
Participants sign up to the open climate collabathon via nodes or independently. Nodes are mostly Universities and civic tech groups. Participants assemble into teams, either from their Node or by connecting with other participants on Discord, and then tackle a specific prompt. Prompts are strategic projects and challenges organized around the 5 domains of the open climate project. Prompt hosts (subject matter experts) design the challenges alongside the open climate core team so that they are all represent distinct parts of the same project puzzle.
MANY WAYS TO PARTICIPATE AND GETTING INVOLVED
civic tech groups
Nodes are organizations anywhere in the world —typically Universities and civic tech groups— that attract and guide participants. They facilitate team formation and support through the Node’s digital channels. When applicable, Nodes provide on-site venues for meetings.
Build a Global and Open Climate Platform
An integrated global climate accounting system, web platform and portal built one prompt at a time. The collabathon is organized around multiple prompts for teams to work on.
This year all events will be taking place online organized by local nodes all over the world. Most nodes are universities and civic tech organizations.
