We already had a good conversation at Sustain about the Climate Emergency. The notes are here. I’ve started writing up a report, here. I’d love to get eyes on it, talk about it, and see if we can move forward.
To both hold a space for us to talk about the larger questions of open source and tech sustainability as it relates to climate change, and to provide resources for helping others navigate the issue.
- Develop a report on climate change and open source
- Provide resources for pushing greener practices in open source projects
- Provide resources for lobbying local governments to pursue better climate policies when it comes to technology
- Educate our colleagues about this issue
- What does it mean to be sustainable environmentally in tech?
- What resources are there to help make technical work more sustainable?
- How can we effectively galvanize the open source community to adapt to the environment effectively?
- How can we support open source offices and efforts for environment-related NGOs?
See the beginnings of one, here.
