Earth HQ – a “situation room” for the planet

Earth HQ launches as the first daily “Planetary Emergency” dashboard ahead of climate summit

Earth HQ combines the rigor of scientific data and engaging visualization techniques with the storytelling power of environmental news media to present a new way of understanding and confronting the accelerating planetary emergency.

From wildfires to air pollution to coral reef bleaching, Earth Dashboard tracks the forces imperilling the natural systems that support life on earth, in near-real time, as they are happening. It presents a constant flow of reliable, accessible scientific data on what can and must be done to protect the global commons – our vital resources and ecosystems.
