While trying to stay sane during seemingly never-ending lockdown and increasing restrictions, we continue our fight to mobilise for strong global climate action! 🌏🌍🌎✊
Our project teams are still hard at work, with some close to the proposal stage! Read about our projects below and find out how you can contribute. If you are interested in any of the projects, please reach out to the team leads - they will be happy to brief you and figure out your potential role in the project! Please note that we are still relying on voluntary work for our projects at this stage but our teams are already busy preparing winning project proposals to get them funded so that we can take them to the next level 🔝🙌
And don’t forget to stay safe and wear a mask - we’re all in this together! 😷🤗
UPDATE ON PROJECTS
Act For Climate
This week, the Act for Climate project focused on creating a pitch deck and proposal to showcase the project so far. Angela and Carly joined us to help with this process while Wes created a beta version one landing page on Webflow. Line and Pieter presented this pitch deck to the wider Designers for Climate community during the Thursday meeting. It was great to receive feedback and to question whether we were on the right path for the project. If you want to become part of the team at this critical stage, please contact Liz.
Team Members: Pieter Vanrdomme, Line de Carné , Dilara Arslan, Angela Wyss
Team Meeting: Every Monday
Emojis For Climate
The Emojis for Climate team is in the process of writing 2 proposals - one for a for tote bag and one for a menstrual cup emoji. They are also working on emojis for deforestation and anxiety, both climate related or not. The team has found its rhythm and flow and is confident it will be able to present 5 or more emojis soon! Want to contribute to this awesome project? Then reach out to Juliette!
Next week will see the start of the Climate Dictionary - a project to reframe the language around the climate crisis to convey the real urgency of the issue and of the continuous ecocide and the need for countries and corporations to become regenerative! If you are interested and want to be part of the kick-off discussion, please reach out to Dilara!
Team Members: Carly Merrett, Sofia Elisabeth Ratzinger
The Data Sketchers have too many ideas and not enough hands - the team is desperately looking for illustrators! Please reach out to Line if you would like to help illustrate some of the most pressing issues of our time in an engaging and fresh style.
Grist.org explores whether environmental groups are delivering on their promise to improve diversity and representation. Are they all talk or they walk the walk? In Germany at least, parts of the climate movement still have some way to go.
