We envision a world where climate change has been reversed completely, equitably, and justly; all of humanity’s work is climate-positive or climate-neutral; and humanity and natural ecosystems coexist and thrive in a harmonious, respectful relationship.
To achieve this world, we see a nearer future where organizations, governments, communities, and people direct much of their talent and labor towards working together on equitable and just climate solutions; climate-positive work is widely available, sought after, and celebrated; and everyone is empowered to work on climate.
Work on Climate is getting more people to work on fighting climate change through our programs, partnerships, and our positive and action-oriented community.
We foster collaboration, experimentation, knowledge-sharing, and broad awareness of the climate work ecosystem in order to unblock folks seeking to work on climate and inspire them to take action through job-seeking, entrepreneurship, volunteer work, or organizing with others.
Eugene and Cass were two software engineers at Google who cared about climate but were unsure about how to make a difference. By connecting with each other and taking action, they gained the confidence to leave their jobs.
Eugene’s goodbye email went viral on LinkedIn reaching 500K views, where he met our third co-founder Eva, and bootstrapped the core team and community we have today.
If you would like to become a Volunteer at Work on Climate you do not need to have a climate background because we need a variety of skills common for startups such as marketing, business development, software engineering, operations, project management, user research, design and others.
