Cool Earth is using tech to change the world for the better

Cool Earth, a digital-first charity, uses technology, superfast broadband and social media – all in a way to monitor their impact and effectiveness when fundraising online for the rain forest communities to halt deforestation and impact on climate change.

All of Cool Earth’s partnerships are community-led and they form shields to make neighbouring forests inaccessible to loggers. Cool Earth also uses satellite imagery to monitor canopy loss and uses drones for fly throughs.

To keep people safe when donating to their cause online, the use of crypto currency is enforced. Other technologies that are being investigated are bioacoustics and eDNA.
