Weather presenters are among the most trusted communicators on climate change, and they usually have a huge reach on all sorts of media. The weather and climate information they share effectively reach the people, and can influence the public mindset on climate action. Weather presenters are also at the frontline of weather communication when extreme weather events occur, and they can give advice on how to deal with the dangers.
Climate without Borders wants to put ‘sharing is caring’ into practice. We already have a weather & climate communications platform to exchange information on weather, extreme events, climate change, policy and action. We will set up a wide variety of local and national educational, cultural and art projects in cooperation with schools, institutions, governments and the private sector. And we will organize regional boot camps to engage more weather presenters into raising climate awareness, to make a transition to a sustainable, low-carbon society.
Climate without Borders was founded in 2017, and had the explicit support of by ' (four!) UN departments: World Meteorological Organization WMO, Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change IPCC, UN climate change UNFCCC and UN environment UNEP.
