2016 Climate Knowledge Brokers Workshop

The Climate Knowledge Brokers Group (CKB) gathers the best climate knowledge brokers in the world to discuss tactics and strategies to use information to shift the world to a more climate compatible future. Join us in the Rocky Mountains in September to discuss how best to perform this role.

This workshop will be fully interactive – don’t expect lots of powerpoint presentations. If you come to CKB, you come to work; to share; to think.

As the Open Knowledge Hub project has evolved we’ve seen a number of exciting new ideas and collaborations emerge from among the project partners that really push forward the Open Knowledge agenda.

An innovative global partnership of knowledge brokers has taken on the challenge of signposting and improving access to knowledge resources for end users.
