Code+Climate

In a time of heightened climate change denial and the onslaught of scientifically backed consensus, how can scientists, coders, technologists and artists work together to amplify the significance and importance of the impacts happening to the climate across the globe? How can scientists utilize coders and artists to communicate their research? And how can we, as a community, address the growing concern of climate change?

This mini-conference will follow a ‘wiki’ format, meaning that the schedule for the event will be constructed and edited by the attendees themselves, based on their shared enthusiasms and interests.

The Format


In this one-day summit, we’ll try to answer these questions and draw a path forward for effective ways of addressing climate change. Structured as an ‘un-conference’, code+climate provides a forum for every attendee to lead discussions, present work, teach workshops and devise new models for effective communication.

Who Should Attend?

Code+Climate is open to coders & non-coders, technologists, scientists, activists and would-be-activists, organizers and those looking to be organized. We’re committed to assembling a diverse set of voices and skill sets, and to providing a safe space for conversation.
