Today I am celebrating my 53rd birthday. I am fortunate to be doing so with friends and family and, knock on wood, in good health. This makes it all the more important to me to continue helping to fight the climate crisis. Susan and I have kicked off several projects to that end.
One of these projects has been to work with Climate Crisis Collective (CCC) to build better technology for decentralized climate movements, such as Fridays for Future, Sunrise Movement and Extinction Rebellion. We realized that these movements are crucial to achieving the level of collective action that is required.
Below is a deck that walks in detail through what has been done so far. CCC has taken a user centric approach, observing organizers to understand their technology needs. From this have come a variety of projects, including big improvements to Action Network that have already shipped and are saving organizers a lot of time and resulting in better data quality.
There is a long roadmap of additional features and pieces of software to be built. So for my birthday I am asking everyone to make a contribution to Climate Crisis Collective (tax deductible, in case you were wondering). Thanks!
