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.

CoClimate sets out to inspire curiosity, cultivate questioning, and re-engage exhausted audiences around climate change. We undertake research to unearth insights, unique perspectives, and emerging practices, and we use that knowledge to design and create imagery, experiences, and objects that are beautiful, compelling, imaginative, and legible for people from different worldviews and frames of reference.

Creativity, diversity, integrity, and coherent points-of-view are core values, and we provide vision and character through our work with clients, partners, and audiences. The outcome is 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.

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.

SUPERCLIME

CoClimate is developing tools for applying insights from psychology, sociology, and communications research to the design and practice of climate change public and stakeholder engagement. The goal of these tools is to facilitate the use of best practices in everyday life and to make the mechanisms and obstacles of climate change engagement more visible and actionable.

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.

LIBRARY OF 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.
