TL; DR: We gathered 120+ tech people to fight climate change by collaborating on impactful community projects.
It all started with this tweet from Steven Hylands:
I was the first one to answer his call, but dozens joined as well. We gathered everyone in a Slack workspace: Impact Makers was born on April the 23rd.
Things scaled quickly and the community was well received from the very first days. Lots of amazing people joined, sharing ideas and starting projects to fight climate change.
In less than a week, more than 100 people integrated our fellowship: developers, product managers, designers, entrepreneurs… we even started interacting with other communities sharing our purpose, such as ExtintionRebelion or WorldVsPlastic.
We are working hard on launching new high-impact projects to raise awareness about the global emergency we all are facing. Some examples:
Climate Choice - Learn how you can help prevent earth’s climate breakdown. It’s the best place on the web for anyone to learn what you can do today to reduce your carbon footprint. The emphasis is placed on facts and immediate action: https://climatechoice.co/
Shame List - A curated list of the top polluting companies in the world, next to simple actions you can take to pressure them into changing their eco policy.
… and there is more to come! Our list of ideas is growing by the day but we need more people from Indie Hackers to hop in. We can’t do this alone, but we know the members of Indie Hackers share our mindset. This is a call to you, reader: you are what we are looking for.
