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:
- We’re long-time partners with the U.S. State Department and analysts for the Chinese government. Our tools have helped them assess and communicate the impact of their government strategies.
- 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.
- We work alongside the scientific community to build an understanding of what climate change means for society and the impacts our actions have on finding solutions.
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.
