At Climate Collective, we are creating a Sector Collaboration Network, with the goal of bringing together organizations and individuals who work in or have interest in climate innovation and pooling their skills, assets, and networks to (a) contribute to the project and (b) support new opportunities to grow and strengthen the climate innovation sector as a whole.
Upcoming Events for the Sector Collaboration Network:
Date TBD: Second Sector Collaboration Network Workshop.
Past events for the Sector Collaboration Network:
February 26, 2021: The first Sector Collaboration Network Workshop was held virtually and had 36 participants from Memorial University, municipal and provincial government, private industry and non-profit. Participants were divided into teams, and, through a Strategic Doing™ process, began to develop projects for youth within climate innovation. These projects are continuing to be developed in 2021.
February 12, 2021: An introductory meeting to the Sector Collaboration Network pillar of our project. Kate Murphy (Project Coordinator for Climate Collective), Dr. Rob Greenwood (Associate Vice President for Public Engagement and External Relations), and Justin Dearing (head of Memorial’s new Sustainability and Climate Action Office) outlined the project, the benefits of the project for Memorial University and our province, what involvement in the process would look like and what this collaboration could accomplish for the climate innovation sector. The recording of this meeting can be found here.
Projects from the first Sector Collaboration Network Workshop:
“Climate Matters”: A Discussion Session. This was a discussion session held at our July 2021 Youth Climate Summit, “Take Action!” The team running the session asked youth what climate issues mattered most to them and what opportunities they would like to see. Read the infographic with the results here.
C3: Community Currents for Climate. This is a project for junior high and high school classes, where students design and install water flow meters in waterways in their communities and then collect data for watershed-monitoring. Students will report this data back to their communities. This project is being piloted this year.
