Event Details

Join us in London for a day dedicated to a truly global challenge: What makes climate change so daunting? Is it the complexity of the problem that leads to confusion and resignation? Is the conversation worn out before people are mobilized around the key challenges? How can journalists create coverage about an issue so vast in scale and scope that ultimately engages communities around the world?

Teams will work to design a solution to this TechRaking challenge: Design a product or service that catalyzes audiences to untangle the issues knotted in climate change while revealing the scale of the issue in a new and surprising context.

Design and development time will be generously provided by The Working Group.

Date: Wednesday, March 25

Time: 8 a.m. - 5 p.m., followed by a happy hour

Location: The Proud Archivist: 2-10 Hertford Road, London N1 5SH
