by Steven Zhang · updated May 5, 2023

New to climate tech? Here are some resources to help you get started.

Articles, books, & podcasts

Here are our favorite resources for learning about the space:

Virtual communities

We recommend joining one of these communities as you go on your climate career path:

  • Work on Climate, aka WoCl. Free, membership form for Slack group required, a few thousand active participants. Work on Climate also has an excellent wiki and free expert office hours. Here's a fast company article about the community
  • MCJ Collective, aka MyClimateJourney. Membership form and a small fee for Slack group required, a few thousand active participants.
  • Anecdotally, we have found MCJ to be a smaller but more experienced community, especially for founders (perhaps due to the fee required). Although, WoCl has more people. Best to join both :-)
  • Jack Fritzinger has compiled an excellent list of all other Climate Tech communities here.

In-person events
