WHO WE ARE
What began as a challenge has become a community: Cardano4Climate
We are a community following the examples of the Project Catalyst Swarm & WADA; building on the principles of engagement, reliability, & sustainability.

WHAT WE DO
In the past 3 months, we have grown a community around communication channels & a shared vision. Emerging from our social media channels, weekly meetings, monthly event, website, YouTube channel, & outreach both inside & outside of Catalyst is
a community hub of
a resource base for
an online, global meeting place & time to
to reach the highest in human collaboration to address humanity's greatest challenge: Climate Change

The Global Problem
Climate change is a failure of cooperation
Due to increasing activism and consumer consciousness, trillions of dollars are being pledged towards mitigating and reversing Climate change. Our current systems are inefficient. There exists a widespread lack of transparency, community trust & impact on a global scale. Solutions being proposed by world leadership are centralized & do not work for everyone. Where do communities in need turn?
A Scalable Solution
Two disruptions to our current situation on earth can not be ignored... Climate Change & Blockchain technology. One is a wicked problem; the other is positioned to become a major contributor to the solutions. The Cardano blockchain is sustainable while facilitating the world-wide scalability, transparency & traceability essential for the effective allocation of resources. These capabilities increase the trust needed to motivate off-chain communities to choose Cardano, the blockchain network best positioned to facilitate solutions for those concerned about carbon footprints.
Detailed Problem Description:
A community-driven project like Catalyst needs community organized events & meetings to connect ideas & initiatives, discuss & solve problems, & initiate collaboration. Without moderation, facilitation, coordination, & an action plan, energy & time is consumed by discussions without reaching a conclusion or direction for implementation.
Current & Proposed Solution:
The Cardano4Climate HUB is motivated by the language of the heart: purpose. The citizens of this culture are localized to the environment & systems in which they live, while being aware of the global impact of Climate Change. It is both the problems creating Climate Change & the ground-up solutions to mitigate it, that have drawn us together into a global community of many tongues, heads, hearts, & hands that reach into every corner of the globe. Cardano4Climate opens a space to speak our heart languages & gives a collective voice to this purpose through our social media channels, meetings, and event.
The Catalyst community, individuals representing funded proposals and those applying for funding, non-government organizations & communities outside the Cardano network affected by &/or working to mitigate climate change.
Impact on the Challenge, Catalyst, Cardano & the Climate:
The 'F7: Scale-UP Cardano's Community Hubs' challenge asks, "How do we encourage Local Community Hubs to drive adoption and awareness of Cardano in the next 6 months?" By providing the time & space for connecting individuals & teams, forwarding important announcements, collaborating with other Hubs, moderating various discussions on our Discord server & Telegram channel, hosting meetings and an organized event, Cardano4Climate has been directly addressing this challenge for several months now.
Cardano4Climate realizes an opportunity for Cardano to combine new blockchain models with ground-up, community driven challenges and solutions arising from climate change. Cardano gives power to all. Through Catalyst, we have access to an ecosystem of aligned individuals, as well as the conditions necessary for the creation of regenerative systems to heal us and our environment.
