ABOUT

How long will justice be crucified, and truth bear it? We shall overcome because the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice. Martin Luther King Junior

Just & Equitable Utilization For Inclusive Collaboration

MISSION

SISYPHUS is developing an inductive data, code, and method for governmental, professional, and community stakeholders to utilize as an equity counter toolset to confront the pressing issue of climate justice. We plan to scale to other aggregated levels (e.g., local, regional, national, global), and different types of climate crises (e.g., geological, hydrological, meteorological, climatological).

NEW ORLEANS PILOT CITY

By identifying, enumerating and understanding these underlying climate injustice and inequity causes within New Orleans, we can then distill an effective user journey for climate action to an array of socioeconomic, geographical and historical contexts. We will scale to address the growing humanitarian issue of the vulnerable global south that is disproportionately affected by climate change.

TEAM

Our team has both diverse expertise and lived experience (e.g., PhDs, Peace Corps, Fulbright, Fellows) from the most climate change vulnerable countries.
