We created the Earth Hero app to serve as a personal guide for people who want to be a part of the solution.

Join the Earth Hero community - Try the app and help restore a healthy Earth where all lives can thrive.


A few years ago my significant other heard a story in the news about the climate crisis and wanted to be part of the solution. She searched for a climate action app, but could not find one. Because I knew how to code apps, she asked if I could help.

I accepted the challenge and reached out to Dr. Peter Kalmus, and Dr. Annette Olson - scientists working on climate change - and we agreed to form a team of volunteers to create the app. It’s been an amazing journey.
