We bring an evidence-based perspective to communicating the science, impacts, and risks of climate change.
We specialize in making maps, documentary video, research reports, and plain-language training, writing, and outreach.
Plain-language description and analysis make climate science understandable and meaningful.
Various aspects of climate change can be explored using maps, graphs and climate data for provinces, local regions and cities across the country.
Documentary videos, collaboratively developed with local and Indigenous knowledge holders as well as other experts, help make local sense of the global issue of climate change.
