Who are we?

We empower people to contribute to real, systemic climate solutions.

Earthly learning and teaching

We believe education is the most powerful tool in the fight against climate change.

Our Founders

Eric Steinberger

Eric Steinberger

CEO & Co-Founder

Eric has worked at MIT, Facebook AI, TU Vienna, and Luxembourg University – all before completing his first year at the University of Cambridge. This was possible because of free online education. When he was 14, he started studying Physics and Computer Science through MIT's 'Open CourseWare' program, and other online material. Consequently, Eric understands the impact online education can have and wants to use this to help the next generation of brilliant climate enthusiasts learn what they need to know in order to solve the world's biggest problems. Beyond work, Eric enjoys hiking, rock music, and animated movies.
