The project proposes an option to a climate countdown and provides an option for people to engage directly with the climate.
Community: an exponential aggregation of CLI-mate users
Development of an easy interface to link individuals personally with global climate change will be the directive of the CLI-mate freeware widget.
Solution: establish the feedback loops
As the Climate Clock prospectus indicates, a feedback loop is essential. Establishing an opportunity for feedback through personalized interaction provides motivation for behavioral change.
CLI-mate is a means to stimulate critical adjustment in human behavior, ultimately on a global level. If climate change is the most urgent issue of our time, then the development of an interface to encourage, or to be the means by which we make those modifications, is needed now. One of the essential challenges is to facilitate a personal relationship between individuals and global climate change. Global warming trends must be directly connected to the source in order to change behavior.
