CoClimate is a research & design studio whose mission is to provoke, stimulate, and inspire new connections between people, technology, and the environment.

 

 

 

We create spectacular experiences and unique objects.

Our research unearths insight, unique perspectives and emerging practices. We design and create experiences, objects, images, insights, and videos that are beautiful, compelling, imaginative, and legible for people coming from different worldviews and frames of reference. We imagine, curate, and build new relationships between people, technology, and the environment. We refresh exhausted audiences and spur stakeholder engagement.

We Design The Difference That Makes A Difference

We inspire curiosity, cultivate questioning, and we re-engage exhausted audiences around climate change. We value creativity, diversity, integrity, and coherent points-of-view, and we bring vision and character to our work with clients, partners, and audiences. The result a more meaningful and delightful path to participation, insight, and consequence.

Our Practice Areas

CoClimate works with partners and clients to re-engage exhausted audiences.

In addition to our current programs, we provide custom services in our practices areas. For more details on CoClimate’s programs and custom work, please contact us and see how we can help.

Current Programs

Strange Weather

We talk about the weather all the time, to both strangers and family, at formal settings or in the street. There isn’t a central narrative about weather, but when we talk about the climate, impending destruction, costs, environmental degradation, droughts, floods, fires and carbon counts form a dominant narrative. It’s enough to get you down. Strange Weather engages people in a conversation rather than preaching at them. It involves work that propels audiences to consider their own relationship with changing weather, and it encourages thoughtful reflection as opposed to guilt or powerlessness.

Change Design

In 2014, the Center for Research on Environmental Decision Making (CRED) at Columbia University’s Earth Institute and ecoAmerica release a Guide to the Psychology of Climate Change Communications.

In conjunction with that release, CoClimate is producing a set of a map & cards for diving deeper into diverse perspective and worldviews, developing climate change communications strategies, and overcoming common obstacles.

Ecosystem Service Design

Connecting biological populations and ecosystem processes with the discipline of interaction design, the Ecosystem Service Design program imagines and prototypes new connections between humans, technology, and the natural environment. Participants emerge with specific environmental opportunities and challenges and a set of practical perspectives for conducting design research with non-human clients in order to identify their unmet needs and desires.

Emerging Practices

In 2015, we begin the process of exploring how climate change will reshape our lives and livelihoods over the next quarter century. By focusing on emerging behaviors, rare practices, unique habits, skills, and styles, we will identify new ways that workers, experiencers, and makers are re-shaping their technologies and their environment to prepare for and anticipate climate change.
