Climate Access is piloting innovative climate communications and engagement approaches in the field.
We collaborate with clients and partners across sectors, including nonprofit organizations, government agencies and academic institutions to test new approaches and develop cutting-edge outreach strategies tailored to specific contexts and regions.
Visualizing climate impacts and solutions
One of the key barriers to action on climate change is that risks don’t seem immediate and urgent to most people. Climate Access is using cutting-edge technology, scientific data and innovative engagement techniques to bring sea level rise data to life, enabling community members to be part of decision making processes to prepare for climate impacts and build stronger, more resilient communities.

Look Ahead - San Mateo
Look Ahead - San Francisco
In 2017, Climate Access will return to San Francisco with a new mobile app utilizing virtual reality technology to provide a more immersive window into sea level rise impacts and solutions. The project will focus on three unique sites to reach stakeholders who are otherwise not engaged in community risk reduction efforts and prompt users to take action and encourage involvement in local planning efforts. Following the San Francisco pilot period, this innovative virtual reality experience has the potential to be scaled and brought to cities across the country.
