The Washington Geoengineering Consortium


Sit tight! We are overhauling our website. It will be missing some features and generally look like an Atari game for a few days. We’ll be back soon, smarter than you imagined.


The Washington Geoengineering Consortium is a collaboration between a set of academics from Johns Hopkins University and American University in Washington, DC. We are concerned with the social, political, and legal implications of geoengineering technologies. Our public outreach efforts are guided by the observation that, to date, the conversation about geoengineering’s development, deployment, and implications has been confined to a relatively narrow set of voices. Our goal is to generate space for perspectives from civil society actors and the wider public, to produce a heightened level of engagement around issues of justice, agency, and inclusion.

We’ve released the report from the Civil Society Meeting on Geoengineering, which took place on November 4, 2013 at Johns Hopkins University.

We’ve created a useful timeline of activities, events and publications related to climate engineering, which you can see here.
