Climatematch Academy Mission Statement

Our mission is to democratize climate science.

Democratization is the act of making something accessible to everyone. Climatematch Academy (CMA) seeks to make climate science accessible to all by allowing all people from all backgrounds equal access to education and networking opportunities, and providing everybody an equal voice in scientific contribution.

CMA offers a two-week program involving hands-on tutorials developed and taught by leading experts following the successful Neuromatch Academy format. Students will also be offered mentoring from experts, professional development seminars, career panels and opportunities to virtually socialize with their fellow students.

We want to help proliferate this style of teaching while ensuring that our courses are always accessible to everybody. For this reason, our course materials are all freely available to reuse, share, and view and always under a CC-BY license.
