“I’m worried about the climate crisis but I’m not sure how I can help.”
Work On Climate can help! These are community-suggested resources for delving into different areas of the climate problem. Resources are grouped into starter packs.
A starter pack is:
- A collection of no more than 4-5 resources
- Quality over quantity
- Expert validated and credible
- Helped someone unaffiliated with the resource with their transition into working in climate
- You cannot add, or ask to add your own initiative to a starter pack
Our hope is that a starter pack will provide the tools you need to brainstorm climate solutions and figure out how you can help. Do you have other resources to suggest? Did you take an action or learn something useful from a starter pack? Share it with us on #learn-the-space
