The Fellowship Story

600 people. 24 employers. All in one room in downtown San Francisco. That’s where the Climatebase story began, at the world’s first Climate Career Fair in May 2019. Back then, there was no Climatebase website or weekly newsletter. But what was there, was a room full of talented people eager to get to work on solving the climate crisis.

The success of the Climate Career Fair inspired us to scale our impact by launching an online platform focused on the same goal: To get more people working on climate.

We founded and launched Climatebase.org in June 2020. Since then, Climatebase has become the world's leading platform for climate employment. Our website has been used by over a half-million people around the world, and we’ve helped thousands of the world’s leading climate tech companies and environmental nonprofits attract mission-driven talent.

While we’re proud of our growth and impact, we’re determined to make it even easier for the world’s talent to transition into working on climate.

That’s why we’re launching the Climatebase Fellowship — a climate career accelerator for the most talented, mission-driven members of our community, designed to be a launchpad for the next leaders in climate tech.

We look forward to reviewing your application.
