Calling all UW CoE majors: the UW Foster School of Business is leading a campus-wide initiative to tackle climate risk with urgency and we need your help!

The mission of the new ‘UW Climate Risk Lab’ is to make the best climate risk data, analysis and tools available to all. Our vision is a future where climate risk is accounted for in all strategic and organizational planning worldwide. In order to begin to fulfill our mission, we are starting off building a Wiki-based data repository for all climate-risk related data, analysis and tools available in the public domain under open license. We are seeking the support of 3-4 CoE interns
(undergrads and grads) who love working with diverse data and have an interest in climate risk as well as data-driven solutions to climate risk mitigation and
adaptation. The project will begin Sept 18th, 2023 and last until early January with opportunities to continue collaborating with the Lab thereafter.
Interns will be asked to commit to the Wiki build for a minimum of 5 hours per week for the project duration seeding established data sources, organizing them, making them searchable, and ultimately creating a strong MediaWiki foundation that will make climate risk data easy to find and to extract for end-users.

More information is in the attached flyer.
