The biggest challenges facing our lives on Earth are made up of complex, interconnected parts. People need better ways to understand the full picture.
That's why we're here.
Our team at Climate Interactive helps people see what works to address climate change and related issues like energy, water, food, and disaster risk reduction. For example:
- Our tools have helped governments assess and communicate the impact of their climate policies.
- We've helped NGOs and businesses improve their thinking and communication in the UNFCCC climate negotiations.
- We're helping development agencies in East Africa design better strategies to reduce the number of people displaced by extreme events and slow onset disasters, like droughts.
Overall, our easy-to-use, tangible, scientifically-grounded tools help people see for themselves what options exist today to create the future they want to see.
When it comes to helping people understand the big picture and see what works to address our biggest challenges, we draw on a suite of approaches, many of them developed at MIT in the fields of system dynamics and organizational learning. Our team benefits from decades of experience and mentorship from leaders like Dana Meadows, John Sterman, and Peter Senge.
