The Climate Change Collaboratory1 aims to strengthen the relations between Austrian scientists, policy makers, educators, environmental NGOs, news media and corporations - stakeholders who recognize the need for adaptation and mitigation, but differ in worldviews, goals and agendas. The collaboratory will manage expert knowledge and provide a platform for effective communication and collaboration. It aims to assist networking with leading international organizations, bridge the science-policy gap and promote rich, self-sustaining community interaction to translate knowledge into coordinated action. Innovative survey instruments in the tradition of “games with a purpose” (Rafelsberger & Scharl, 2009) will create shared meaning and leverage networking platforms to capture indicators of environmental attitudes, lifestyles and behaviors.
