Earlier today I was accepted for membership in Climate Access, which is described below. It's a terrific resource. I encourage those who are interested to get connected. The website can be found here: http://www.climateaccess.org/. Scott Jackson sjackzen46 [at] gmail.com A bridge between research and action. For years, we at TRIG's Social Capital Project <http://www.thesocialcapitalproject.org> have been hearing from climate practitioners that this is what they need. Those in government and nonprofits trying to communicate to the public about climate change say that they often lack the time and resources to digest the latest research and incorporate it into their campaigns. Similarly, researchers wish to know more about how their findings are playing out in the field. Everyone wants to know what they need to know, and to have it available at their fingertips. Climate Access is that bridge. In the fall of 2011, The Resource Innovation Group's Social Capital Project<http://www.thesocialcapitalproject.org>, in partnership with the Rutgers Climate Institute<http://climatechange.rutgers.edu/> and the Stonehouse Standing Circle <http://stonehousesummit.com/>, launched Climate Access to provide climate communications thinkers and doers with access to the necessary tools, knowledge and people. This is all in the name of increasing public support for climate policies and engagement in programs that help people, organizations and communities change their energy and other carbon-intensive behaviors. Climate Access facilitates the rapid peer-to-peer exchange of information, bringing together those working on climate communications from various organizations and institutions. As such, Climate Access serves as a network of networks that fosters connection and collaboration and helps turn ideas into action. It also features the Social Capital Project's ability to synthesize and analyze the most relevant research and campaign strategies.
