We make climate science actionable

We are an interdisciplinary team of researchers at the University Heidelberg, CalTech, CSU, UCLA and other top universities. We connect and combine empirical findings in atmospheric physics and geography on the sources of greenhouse gas emissions with social and economic sciences to understand where emissions come from and how high-resolution emissions data impacts climate action.


Interactive emissions maps

As part of our first pilot study on the sources of greenhouse gas emissions in the Rhein-Neckar region in Germany, we have published our first preliminary findings, including interactive emissions maps and some conclusions from our psychological experiments.

Online Workshop

On 2 February 2021 at 8.00 am PST (5.00 pm CET), we will host our first international online workshop of the Climate Action Science project with participants from the US and Germany. The workshop will include keynote speeches by leading scientists in the field of climate action science, networking elements, and a brief co-creation section to develop the foundation for future joint initiatives.
