CC16 - Branding work for online Climate Change Impact portal
Project start and end dates:
2020-01-27 to 2020-05-12
We are in the design and planning phase of a new climate change impact planning web portal (related to “UN Sustainable Development Goal 13: Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts“). The portal will recommend a set of actions that ordinary citizens can take to avoid, mitigate, adapt, or rebuild from climate change disasters. We would like assistance coming up with the branding strategy, design & guidelines, and then (time allowing) produce key graphics and messages for our prototype portal.
We would like to thank Ilan Mouna, and the other students and teaching staff of ADVG 420 – Brandstanders: Experiential learning/Capstone course. *

Software can help the world respond to climate change impacts and disasters.
In 2019 we set out to investigate if there is a need for a solution that gives citizens personalized help preparing for and recovering from climate change impacts and lets trusted authorities assist them and report on their results.
As part of this effort, a great deal of market and technical research was conducted over the last few years. Over 140 students have been involved so far, in dozens of academic institutions in Canada and internationally.
Our greatest finding is the willingness of citizens to take responsibility and help themselves, their neighbors and community plan for, mitigate and recover from climate change impacts and disasters. We also confirmed that a software solution can be built to help overcome the barriers they face when trying to do so.
Now we’re working on a prototype and sharing our findings and progress. Find out more on our OASIS project website!

A Riipen Project
Riipen is your online platform for virtual project-based learning
Get hands-on support from our students through an in-class project or virtual internship.
- In-class projects allow you to connect with one of our educators to embed your project into the students’ curriculum. Become the real-life case study for students in the classroom!
- Virtual internships are similar to in-person internships, except they are project-based with a clear outcome and the engagement is primarily done online.
