What we're about

At ClimateAction.Tech (CAT) we are a global online community of tech workers seeding climate action in companies, organisations and industries through deep, self-organized community building and support. Our approach is to advocate internally within tech, and to collaborate externally to support the broader climate movement.

⚠️ Only members of the Slack community are accepted to the MeetUp group. If you haven't joined us on Slack yet, join here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdtvNeUkNkPybk9_Ln5klL1RUPHUCwfK4OfF-odRWnHME9d-g/viewform

Vision
Our vision is a transformed tech industry that makes climate a priority, and takes responsibility for social impacts and ecological limits.

Safety & Privacy
We recognize that there are different levels of risk in taking climate action. We are committed to operating a safe environment for all, regardless of gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, religious beliefs or other differences.
We follow this code of conduct and the Chatham House Rule.

Membership is open to anyone who identifies as a tech worker. People of any geographic region, sector, skill-set, day job, seniority, knowledge or experience level are welcome.

We share global & local events here, like our CAT Salons, CAT coffee events and more.

You can find recordings to our past events on our YouTube channel.
