Global Climate Association

The NSDC Organizational Chapter at the Global Climate Association was built with the goal of connecting a global network dedicated to:

  • Educating and equipping individuals with the knowledge to inspire climate action.
  • Leveraging research, technology, and policy for a sustainable future.
  • Creating a platform for the inclusion and empowerment of women in STEM fields from diverse backgrounds.

This chapter aims to bridge the gap between climate science, meteorology, environmental studies, and data science. By fostering a collaborative space, we encourage individuals from diverse disciplines to share knowledge, apply data science techniques, and cultivate an inclusive community focused on addressing climate change.

The chapter was founded in November 2023. Read on to learn more about upcoming activities, events, and opportunities brought to you by this Chapter!
