Open Climate Fellowship

Thanks to support from the Wikimedia Foundation, the Open Climate collective carried out a fellowship program to increase the knowledge commons and collaborative communities of practice. The Open Climate Fellowship is described as follows:

We will build an engagement path for Movement Organizers from the open tech community to engage with climate action movements. Through free culture, open tools, and community building, we will promote a collaborative in which information, solutions and strategies to address climate change are publicly accessible. The work of Wikimedia communities will benefit from dialogue with other organizers, and our stakeholders will benefit from the “hands-on” solutions of Wikimedia communities.

A cohort of seven mid-career practitioners from many countries will explore and learn in the open about good curation and knowledge-sharing practices that connect to real audiences of climate justice practitioners and frontline organizers. We are excited to work with them in this endeavor and learn together.
