Welcome to issue 151 of the climateAction.tech (CAT) Newsletter - your weekly summary of what's happening inside the CAT community, and in the wider world of climate and tech.
⏸️ We’ll be taking a break from Dec 19th to Jan 5th. There won’t be any newsletters in this time. In this last newsletter of the year, we’d like to share some year in review highlights with you all.

Our Year in Review presentation is public! 🎉 Highlights this year (based on our Theory of Change) include:
We had a total of 252 participants at our online events this year
We kicked off two new event formats with our Branch magazine reading group and our watch parties (if you’ve got suggestions for watch party videos, let @Sandra know or comment in this thread)
Our Climate Justice exploration with our friends from the Work On Climate Climate Justice Learning Group continued with a successful ‘Squads’ experiment over the summer
136 groups got connected through our CAT Roulette programme
Our #greener- pages on Outline got over 600 views this year
In September a conversation about fear vs. hope in climate communications and climate action inspired a whole lot of discussion and learning
Branch magazine issue 4: The Open Climate Edition got published in Summer 2022
Our member-sourced and rated books spreadsheet keeps growing
We help our members learn, connect with others, and take action at work. Taking action can take many forms. Our members work on things like…
Developing a climate-conscious tech industry
Decarbonizing the internet & the office
Accelerating climate action with digital solutions
Check out the member projects, actions, and wins in our presentation. If you’d like to showcase your project, win, or action, please add it to here. You can also leave comments in this thread, if you’d like to share just within CAT.
