I am very pleased to announce Climate Lab’s public launch of Climate Lab Networks, a new online network for sharing and accessing open-source climate change information.
In 2009, Climate Lab launched http://climatelab.org, an interactive wiki website where users can collaboratively author and edit climate change information and media online. To date the site has generated more than 250 original articles and over 350 registered users (and counting).
Building on the climate wiki, Climate Lab Networks enables partners to directly pull wiki information and media from climatelab.org into their own websites. Contributions and edits to climatelab.org are immediately available to partner sites connected to the network. In that way, partners can contribute to building a common information resource while directly accessing and leveraging the collective knowledge, expertise, and efforts of the larger community to support their individual missions and campaigns.
To demonstrate Climate Lab Networks, the Climate Lab article on “Small Island Developing States,” for example, at climatelab.org…
