The Climate Literacy Project is an international youth WOC-led nonprofit that strives to make climate information accessible to people across the globe and dismantle language barriers to improve climate literacy. The Climate Literacy Project is a non-partisan organization that is working to create the equitable and sustainable world that we all want to live in through raising environmental awareness.
Our founder, Teresa Doley saw the lack of news and scientific articles in her native languages Tibetan and Burmese while conducting research on how climate change forced migration in Asia. There was a lack of climate news as well as scientific articles on the environment in those languages. Upon further investigation on other languages, she found that being unable to understand English was a significant barrier to becoming environmentally aware. Thus, The Climate Literacy Project was born to address this issue in March 2022 by recruiting volunteers to translate environmental literature into their native languages.
