- Name of Organization: Open Environmental Data Inc
- Title of Proposal: Supporting an Open Climate movement: Increasing the knowledge commons and collaborative communities of practice
- Objectives of Proposal: We will build an engagement path for Movement Organizers from the open tech community to engage with climate action movements. Through free culture, open tools, and community building, we will promote a collaborative in which information, solutions and strategies to address climate change are publicly accessible. The work of Wikimedia communities will benefit from dialogue with other organizers, and our stakeholders will benefit from the “hands-on” solutions of Wikimedia communities.
