Climate Mind

Climate Mind

You don't have to change to care about climate change.

We are an international team of volunteers building a progressive web app to help fight climate change. The app works to teach conversation framing techniques by guiding users to their core values and providing them ways to discuss climate change with their peers.

Earlier this year we expanded the team to include user researchers so we can test and iterate more effectively.

I ran a successful sprint for our second Epic – building our conversation feature between two users which is now in progress.

We have UX writers joining us to refine our messaging throughout.

Technical stuff

We are designing in Adobe XD, moving to Figma in 2022.

We communicate through Slack, Jira and Zoom.

Devs are using Typescript and Google’s Material UI framework.

The project is completely volunteer run.

It is open source, see on GitHub.

This is the Climate Mind app.

And this is the Climate Mind website.

Background

This project started with Kameron at Stanford University in California. I joined the team during the first lockdown when I had been furloughed and helped them start to visualise their ideas. Remote volunteering has it’s challenges but there is a solid idea in this concept and we are always looking for more people who are worried about the changing climate to join us, if that is you email us at hello@climatemind.org.
