Pique Action and Keeling Curve Prize Announce a Strategic Partnership Supporting Climate Solutions

Together the two organizations will ramp up storytelling on innovative climate changemakers

LOS ANGELES, CA. (January 19th, 2022) - Pique Action and the Global Warming Mitigation Project (GWMP) are announcing a strategic partnership. The collaboration will center around the Keeling Curve Prize, an annual prize that awards $250,000 distributed to 10 recipients working on climate solutions that bend the Keeling Curve.

The partnership will focus on the amplification and storytelling of climate solutions, aiming to inspire and attract others across the globe to take action on climate change. Pique will produce and distribute micro-documentaries highlighting the finalists and laureates. Past Keeling Curve laureates include notable climate leaders Twelve, Takachar, and WattTime.

The recipients are selected amongst five categories: Carbon Sinks, Energy, Finance, Social & Cultural Pathways and Transportation & Mobility. The laureates move through a rigorous and complex analysis and scoring process by a team of expert analysts, led by Aven Satre-Meloy. Of the hundreds applications reviewed annually, 20 finalists will be selected and sent to a group of international judges who select the 10 laureates based on a voting system.

Pique Action, a new media company focused on climate solutions, uses the power of storytelling to accelerate the transition to a more sustainable world. Since its launch four months ago, Pique has released 13 micro-documentaries on climate tech startups that have amassed over 2 million cross-platform views.
