WorldClimaps is set to be part of the climate solution by centralizing scientifically reliable information on climate change on a world map, and by building a global collaborative community ready to take action towards a sustainable society
Switzerland | 24/12/2015 –
Too many sources of data and information and the spreading of fake news make it hard for everyone, including experts, to see and keep track of the whole picture of what climate change is causing to our planet. People who lack a background related to climate change and its science behind perceive climate change as too big and too abstract, and therefore they are unaware of the urgency of taking action. WorldClimaps wants to fight fake climate news and to call for more climate awareness by centralizing, visualizing and showing scientifically reliable information about climate change consequences from a global to a local scale and about mitigation actions taken around the globe. WorldClimaps consists of an interactive map and catalog enriched with: – Evidence of climate change: what is happening, when and where on our planet due to climate change. All articles are scientifically reliable and based on proven data. Working together with the scientific community, WorldClimaps is currently analyzing the dynamics of fake climate news and aims to create a database of scientifically verified information, centralized and localized on its world map. Guidelines on how to verify the reliability of sources and articles will be released at the end of the research. – Climate actions taken to fight climate change, from a global to a local scale, in the public and private sectors. All articles will be documented and verified. – A community open to everyone: from climate newbies to activists and experts, professionals and organizations. We started to connect with climate activists, organizations and communities in order to join forces and initiate impact driven collaborations. To raise awareness, WorldClimaps is also active in providing educational services (such as talks and workshops) to schools and universities and to private companies on climate change issues, on sustainability and on the best ways to have an impact through day-to-day operations.
