Data set building: All systems go!
Our servers are up, and we are now ready to start building our data set! We are looking for any and all data sources potentially related to climate change, its impacts, sociopolitical instability, and conflict.
If you are a member of an academic community with access to some interesting data sets and would like to share, please get in touch! We would deeply appreciate your contribution!
Reaching out to the MIT community at PKG event, Community Climate Conversations
This February, we were excited to attend MIT’s Community Climate Conversations event, organized by the the MIT Priscilla King Gray Center, Office of Sustainability, and Radius, and hosted by the MIT Museum. With over 20 local organizations present, the event created opportunities for environmentally-oriented students, faculty and staff, organizations, and investors to meet each other and discuss strategies for tackling climate change.
Other organizations present included Climigration, working to support discussions on managed retreat from climate impacted coastal areas; ClimateX, an online community for climate learning and action; and the local conservation group Boston Harbor Now. We were excited to connect with amazing students and local climate organizers at the event, including Quinton Zondervan, Cambridge City Council member and board member of Green Cambridge. MIT community members have an incredible potential to use quantitative skills and technology to effectively address climate change. We are very excited to stay connected with students and local organizations who are driven to make a difference.
