At the current rate of emissions of 42 Gt of CO2 emissions per year, the global atmospheric budget to stay below the 1.5 degree warming will be exhausted in 8 years and 3 months. This represents a very delicate scenario. At that point, undoubtedly, the first step in managing risk is to measure it.
Yale University & Global Nodes have launched the Open Climate project, which aims to develop and distribute an integrated open source system and a platform to track and account for climate actions to prevent anthropogenic warming above 1.5oC.
Berlin is part of this call for collaboration and has been constituted as one of the Nodes of the Open Climate Project. For this purpose, a Collabathon has been thought of as a new form of event to take advantage of the collective intelligence and to complete multiple challenges of a shared objective together.
What does it consist of?
The Net Impact ESMT club is organizing a Collabathon instance in Berlin and our Open Source Lab has become a partner of this global event.
The invitation to participate in the Collabathon is for all those who want to become owners of this collective open source project. So, if you are a climate expert, software developer, UX/UI designer, blockchain engineer or data scientist don’t think so much and register right now.
The Collabathon event will be held on November 16 and 17 at Drivery Berlin. The address is Mariendorfer Damm 1, 12099 Berlin, Germany.
Come and be part of this great global movement to solve the climate challenge!
