The World of #PlanetData
Part of ODI Leeds' mission, right from its inception, has been to focus upon the massive challenges that face us all. Climate emergency is one of those challenges and something that we are passionate about. We want to bring people together to solve the climate crisis by being #RadicallyOpen.
On this page you can find all the work we've already done in relation to #PlanetData and climate change. Why not explore our #PlanetData event series, or have a look at our Environment, Emission or Energy related projects?
Of course, this work is not finished, and we are still working on new and better tools. So, keep watching this space and get involved if you can! If you have a climate project, event, or tool you would like us to work on get in touch here.
