About Us

ClimateYou.org is an activity of the ClimateYou Alliance, a public charity whose mission is to engage with the public about all aspects of climate change.

ClimateYou.org explores the complex climate system that envelops us, the causes of climate change, and the measures needed to mitigate and adapt to it. ClimateYou.org seeks to empower people of all ages to act to ensure that the Earth remains a hospitable and sustainable environment for humans and all forms of life.

Mission

As a major part of its mission, ClimateYou Alliance partners with educational
institutions, such as the NYC College of Technology, a branch of the City University of
New York. It works with college students and their professors on developing awareness of the many dimensions of climate change and the research and writing skills involved in understanding them.

The website provides a lively and widely accessible place for posting writing by the students in the program, as well as by senior staff and guest writers.

Our focus is to share with you all aspects of global climate change

Dedication

This website is dedicated to Dr. George H. Ropes, a math educator who lived in Westchester County, New York. He created one of the first interactive software programs in 1990 to teach students about climate change. He would applaud the efforts of ClimateYou.org to link people of all ages from around the world to explore, learn about, and communicate the many ways that a changing climate impacts life today — and what we can do about it.
