These 11 organizations are building a greener Europe
April 12th, 2021
The science is clear: the world must act now to avert the worst consequences of climate change. In September we laid out what our next decade of climate action will look like. It’s clear that the scale and complexity of the battle to combat climate change will require everybody to work together, that’s why we continue to advocate for strong climate action.
We launched a €10m Google.org Impact Challenge on Climate to fund bold ideas that aim to use technology to accelerate Europe’s progress toward a greener, more resilient future. Together with our partners at Climate-KIC, we’ve uncovered impactful and ambitious projects.
Here are the 11 organizations working on urgent climate-related issues across Europe that will receive Google.org funding.
Meet the funding recipients
The German organization Climate Farmers is developing soil carbon monitoring systems. This can help Europe’s farmers transition to regenerative agriculture.
Starting this week, the funding recipients of the Google Impact Challenge on Climate will receive mentoring and workshops from Google and external experts on topics like technology, growth, product, design, people, and more.
You can learn more about these organizations in a new podcast series called Planet Progress. In each 25-minute episode our host, mathematician, and broadcaster Dr. Hannah Fry, talks to organizations about their big ideas and the challenges they’re attempting to solve.
These incredible organizations are paving the way for sustainable changes at the local and global levels. We’re proud to do our part in helping them move the world closer to a carbon-free future.
