- Language: English

Luis Felipe Murillo
In 2022, the Open Climate group received a small grant from the Wikimedia Alliances Fund  to create a small fellowship program and a needs assessment to build bridges between the Open and the Climate movement. In this workshop, we will:
Listen: Why are participants in the session interested in the climate crisis? What are they doing? What are they learning?
Introduce: briefly tell participants what our idea and goals with the grant are and how we think they could get involved with the work we’re doing.
Imagine: Let’s imagine -- what could be achieved through leveraging the tools of open into the climate space? What would the impact be? What can we do to get there?
Learning Outcomes[edit source]
By participating in this session, participants will be able to:
- Share what they are doing to help with the climate crisis within the Wikimedia movement.
- Understand how the activities in our grant could be of help when working with the climate movement.
- Imagine new ways in which we could build bridges between the open movement and the climate movement.
We are a group of colleagues from the open technology & knowledge movement who felt the pressing need to address the missing opportunities for collaboration in climate action. Some of our activities include: hosted 11 community calls to explore this intersection; supporting community actions to center Climate Justice in the discussion of Open in different spaces; producing a set of written & thought pieces on the topic.
