It's that time of the year! Happy Earth Month to all! Climate action has always been critical, but this year's rising geopolitical tensions make climate issues all the more urgent. All month, the Pledge 1% blog will highlight member case studies, expert tips, and actionable next steps.
But now? We're passing you the microphone. This is your open thread to discuss all things climate action. You can...
You have the floor! Let's get chatty.
For tools and strategies I have to point to the previous entry here : ) https://community.pledge1percent.org/t5/Member-Projects/GetAgile-Writes-the-Book-for-Social-Impact-M...

I have recently discovered the En-Roads climate Solutions simulator... it is an online simulator that lets users test and explore climate solutions. It is really interesting to see what kinds of policies and actions will actually help us reduce emissions and keep the global temperature from rising! Check out this free tool here: https://www.climateinteractive.org/en-roads/
En-Roads is amazing. I attended a demo by John Sterman (he's the MIT professor in the photo on the homepage who, well, looks like an old MIT professor) and was so blown away. I've been meaning to do the En-Roads Ambassador training -- it's free and virtual, the next one starts on May 16: https://learn.climateinteractive.org/course/camp
