What does “openness” have to do with climate action? The Open Climate collective aims to address this question by discussing the parallels, contrasts, and disconnects between the “open movement” and environmental movement to recast the question of knowledge commons for advancing action research for the climate. Since March 2021, we’ve organized “Open Climate Calls” to bring together activists, researchers, and technologists from various projects to discuss how we can collectively respond to climate change and support environmental activism.
