2022: A Year in Review at ClimateScience
As we welcome 2023 with open arms, it's time to reflect on the past year at ClimateScience. 2022 was a transformational year for our organization, filled with challenges and triumphs, and we're thrilled to share our journey with you.
January - March: "Ideas are great - Execution is everything"
The year started with big hopes and ambitious plans. ClimateScience was thriving, with successful initiatives in communities, Olympiad, TV, Explore, Kids Books, Governments, YouTube, Instagram, Quiz App, Translations, Clubs, and more. The teams were all working together towards our common goal of educating people about climate change.
April - June: "Failure is the mother of learning"
As the year progressed, we began to face some challenges. Teams were rearranged, the world was recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic, and the goals set at the start of the year seemed daunting and far away. Despite these setbacks, we continued to educate people and help them pursue careers in the climate sector through conferences and events. We also started to create more physical community events, double down on our club initiatives, and mature as an organization.
July - September: "Focus is saying no to things you'd love to do"
We took a step back, assessed our progress, and refocused our efforts. We prioritized our most impactful initiatives, Community, Courses, and Olympiad, and worked on improving our learning experience. We also built capacity in marketing and communications, human resources, PR and partnerships, distribution power, and fundraising.
October - December: "Luck favors the prepared mind"
ClimateScience was represented at five international conferences and held events and bilateral meetings with governments at COP 27. The Olympiad participation grew by over 5x, from 10k to 55k, and we worked on improving our learning experience. We identified our target audiences, translated our courses into 10 languages, and formed deep partnerships with governments and organizations.
2022 in Numbers:
Despite the challenges, we had a successful year, and the numbers speak for themselves. Here are a few highlights:
