// About us

Terra.do is building the world’s largest platform for climate action Our mission: Get 100 million people to work directly on climate in this decade. Over 50% of the world’s GDP is getting completely disrupted or transformed by climate. To adapt, we believe that at least 100 million people (that’s just 1% of humanity!) will need to learn climate skills, build new professional networks and find new kinds of work in this decade. We started Terra.do to build the ramp for these 100 million people.

WattTime is an environmental tech nonprofit that empowers all people, companies, policymakers, and countries to slash emissions and choose cleaner energy. Founded by UC Berkeley researchers, we develop data-driven tools and policies that increase environmental and social good. During the energy transition from a fossil-fueled past to a zero-carbon future, WattTime ‘bends the curve’ of emissions reductions to realize deeper, faster benefits for people and the planet.
