Hey, I'm Steven Hylands🖖
I'm a designer and maker on a mission to help fix the climate.
How I'm helping:
Creating a community of tech volunteers who want to help save the planet.On April 23, 2019, I set up Impact Makers - a community of tech people volunteering their skills to create projects that help raise awareness of climate change, and people to take action. To date, we've attracted 680+ members and several projects are under development. We've also started meetup IRL in a few different cities.
Making the best place on the web to learn how you can help prevent climate breakdown.ClimateChoice is a non-profit project created with fellow Impact Makers. It enables you to learn what you can do today to help prevent the earth’s climate from breaking down. In addition, it aims to make it simple for you to let your friends and family what they can do too. Going forward I'll be iterating on the site and adding new content to make it the best possible resource.
Getting the tech community motivated to fight climate change with the world's first online hackathon for makers to help fix the climate.From August 2-30, 2019 I ran The Climate Fixathon. It was a non-profit hackathon that motivated tech workers to take action and create their own projects aiming to help prevent climate breakdown. In the end, 317 participated and 41 products were created makers from across the globe.
Creating the easiest way to understand the climate impact of your flights and compensate for them by carbon offsetting.In September I launched AirCare. We wanted to make it as easy as possible to learn just how harmful flying is. With AirCare all you just need to forward a flight booking receipt to [email protected] to get a free report on its climate impact. You can then compensate for your climate impact by supporting offsetting projects and learn how to avoid flying in future.
We're also targetting specific air travel scenarios (like attending a conference) to get people thinking about if they really need to fly.
Thanks for reading!I'm committed to doing whatever I can to help until we get to the point where meaningful climate action is taking place all over the world. I'd be delighted if you could support me and my projects! 🙌
