Get Involved

….in the fight against the climate crisis.

Contact climatesteps@gmail.com for any of the below, or for any question.

Different Ways You Can Help

Volunteer: Research

We have many readers who are wanting information, but, except for our director, we only have a few volunteer, part-time researchers at the moment. We could use a couple more. Care to join in the discovery of what could save this planet?

The climate touches everything, and there are many ways to fight climate change. You basically could choose the topic you want to research (minus a couple topics here and there), and then write/co-write a page about climate actions. We’ll review and work with you for the needed format and style.

Another benefit – if also done in a particular style, the actions also get shared with our partner app: EarthHero.org.

Volunteer: Social Media

We need someone to not only help moderate our growing social networks but to really help people feel even more at home in sharing and discussing their efforts and ideas. We also need some help in social-sharing the latest CSteps news. We have a decent presence on Instagram (@climate_steps) and an occasional one on Twitter (@ClimateStepsUS), but both could use some love. On the other hand, our Facebook group (www.fb.com/groups/ClimateSteps) is getting a lot of press, from well, Facebook: https://fb.watch/4fVZecFlmr/. We have six great moderators there, but strong growth. Help us plan how best to reach people on these and other social platforms!

Just Share the News!

Liking, commenting on, and sharing this website’s posts, our Facebook page or community, and/or one of our posts on FB, Instagram, and Twitter helps not just us learn what you respond to, but helps market us as well. Even more important, it helps make people think. Too many deny or, worse, complain constantly about the problem, but they don’t actually take action. By sharing the potential steps, climate action discussions become the new normal. And CSteps has the many types of impactful actions a person can do right here, along with the methods to implement and links to resources! Oh, and please use the hashtag #climatesteps when sharing.

Join the Community

We have an amazing community within Facebook – where people really think about action, share and discuss the options, and support and encourage each other. ONLY posts with action suggestions are allowed, unless you give such good news that we all get giddy. www.fb.com/groups/ClimateSteps. Or follow us on Instagram and Twitter and help start and build community discussions there.

Volunteer: Tech

To someone with HTML experience and a red cape, we could use you for some emergency tweaks. Then we have some updates to this website we need to do, plus some cool tools we want to build. Interested in recommending a method and/or doing some coding (including Java or other?) for us? Holler!

Volunteer: Design

Creative? Do you design brands, websites, or tools – or do you know user design? Care to join in the climate fight? We could use some help launching us beyond the current website/brand and into a very user friendly design for late fall and 2022.

Donate!

Please see the Donate link in the right-hand column, or contact us directly at climatesteps@gmail.com. Almost all the funds at the moment will go to registration fees with the IRS and different states, and then into helping us get to the next level in terms of staffing.

Mentor

If you have experience in a particular climate action, please become a mentor. Our mentorship program is just getting started within our Facebook Community (www.fb.com/groups/ClimateSteps), so help us get the ball rolling. We also hope to build a mentorship program within this website/the broader community as well.

Construct and Share an Action Plan.

Map out some of your resolutions for 2021 and how you will tackle them. It’s an excellent exercise, with templates presented on our Action page above (with different methods coming), but we’re also building a place to share them.

With out partner Earth Hero, we’re also building this year a community within the app Earth Hero (www.earthhero.org), for those who like to use apps, where we also can share our actions and our progress.
