Climate solutions exist, but they aren’t happening on the necessary scale to reach the goals set forth in the Paris Agreement. Why? We need to shift our cultural mindsets on a collective level in order to cut emissions across all sectors. One shift the public must make is to mobilize capital for climate mitigation and adaptation solutions, but the relationship between climate and finance can be difficult to understand—especially since the concept of sustainable finance is so interdisciplinary.
This year, Wiki Education is leading an initiative to work with climate, finance, and other experts in an effort to help the public understand the necessary role finance plays in neutralizing climate change by adding this knowledge to Wikipedia. We’re excited to announce a series of 8-week virtual Wiki Scientists courses, guiding subject-matter experts as they learn how to add climate finance and other sustainability knowledge to Wikipedia. We’ll work together to add climate information to pages about finance, finance information to relevant pages about climate change, and to summarize the current approaches to climate finance in different countries and regions.
Please join us in this initiative and sign up for an upcoming course that fits into your area of expertise:
