November 2023 Recap
The most comprehensive COP28 Events tracker
We created a tracker of events in and around COP28, along with Climes, ranging across diverse climate themes, hosts, and formats. It is imperative that all stakeholders are heard, in this Sustainability Transition. We're doing our bit to help people have an impact at the right forums. We need to act and work together now!
JPMC built a tech platform for The Sustainability Mafia!
Over 8 months and multiple iterations, the team of JPMC-Force for Good volunteers built an online platform for the Climate Ninja Program! We will now run and operate all Climate Ninja Cohorts with the help of this and build all our envisioned functionalities on it.
The Climate Ninja Program is going from strength to strength, and we're going to scale up rapidly. If you want to start a Student Chapter at your institute, educate or hire - reach out at email@example.com and be a part of this incredible growth story!
En-ROADS - A tool that tells the future!
Jason Jay from the MIT Sloan School of Management had the undivided attention of Mafiosos and Investados, as he walked the audience through the comprehensive simulator En-Roads, developed by Climate Interactive, the MIT Sloan Sustainability Initiative, and Ventana Systems.
Through the tool's seamless visual representation, he explained the significance of various Climate Tech solutions and how much they can contribute individually and in combination to restricting global temperature rise. A very interactive, informative and eye-opening session about Climate Tech and a great introduction to a super tool.
SusVentures kicked-off at Master's Union
We kicked off the Environmental Sustainability Ventures Program at Master's Union on November 22nd. We had Mafiosos and Investados on the panel, sharing deep insight into the world of venture building in Climate Tech. The Students were super excited after this event and there's insane hype about the Program. We're right on track to build some quality SusVentures!
Staying true to our character - we’re a community by and for Climate Tech Entrepreneurs
The Sustainability Mafia has had several opportunities to sell its soul, and evolve into a cash cow, but it's not who we are. Since Ganesh’s article and even when we formalized it as a Section-8 not-for-profit, the underlying goal has been to work towards the betterment of this planet, for our sake if nothing else - and the belief was, and is that the best way to do this is to enable Climate Tech Entrepreneurs. Our core audience has and always will be our Mafiosos, because without these adventurous avengers of the planet, Climate Action at scale will cease.
