Doing our part

Climate change is a huge, terrifying problem, and the scale of the changes we need to avoid the worst impacts are awe-inspiring.

And with the tech sector responsible for a similar level of emissions as aviation or shipping now, we have our part to play to fix it.

But where do you start?

One of the first things you can do is talk about it, and just like we explored GDPR with OMGDPR last year, we have do ways to explore big, complicated topics like the climate change together.

That's what we're going for with OMG CLIMATE - a community-run, open space event, in London.

A community run, open space event

If you've never been to one before, open space is an event format where you, the attendees, decide the content on the day, by bringing your own subjects you'd like to talk about with peers, in the context of climate change.

What follows is a set of lightly facilitated conversations to explore these subjects in smaller breakout areas, and capture the key insights, before culminating in a final session to share these back with the rest of the group before wrapping up and enjoying the rest of the weekend.

You can read more about the format here, and the schedule below:

We want all you folk coming to feel welcome and safe, and generally be excellent to each other, so we're running it under the Berlin Code of Conduct.

A note on diversity and inclusion

We really want this to be an inclusive event with people coming from a diverse set of communities, because without a diverse group, it's easy to miss loads of really important stuff that would be obvious in retrospect.

So, we're asking for your help to make it better. We're speaking at various events about this anyway, but if you're running a meetup and you're interested in one of us coming to your event to talk about it, please drop Chris a line, as a DM on twitter (@mrchrisadams) or send an email to


Huge thanks to Phoenix Court, for providing their space to run this, for free, and the various staff time for making it possible.
