Terraem was founded to assist in the ongoing and critical work needed to be done to mitigate and adapt to the climate crisis.
Who Are We?
Lots of people care about the issue of climate change and want to be part of the solution. However, they don’t know what to do, or how to do it, or how to get their ideas for projects funded, or how to connect with other people who are actively engaged. Other people are deeply engaged, maybe they’re working for a company that’s innovating solutions, or they’re in a group that is active in some other way. There’s not really one great place for all of these people to converge. If there was, people could find out about what is going on currently, they could tap into a world that’s interested in crowdfunding projects, they could find out about resources, and they could even find out about training programs.
That’s what TerraEm does. We connect people, projects, resources, and training to each other. We fuel the global movement of climate activists with education, networking, and crowdfunding.
Our activist training program creates an army of leaders who design and implement meaningful game-changing solutions, reaching out to increase awareness, change policy, and innovate. Our networking program connects activists at the corporate and public levels, connecting these communities through social media while promoting innovations, research, and initiatives in articles researched and written by trainees and college interns. Our effective crowdfunding platform enables new actions and initiatives to be funded by individual donors. These three efforts are fully integrated; they grow and work together.
By bringing information about current innovation and research, access to crowdfunding, training for activists, and people who care together, we fuel the solution.
So, whoever you are, whatever you think you can do, however much you know, come join us. Find your place in the global movement for climate solutions.

Bryan is the founder and CEO of Meadan Craft Brewing — Israel’s first Gluten-free beer. Bryan’s passion has always been education and social action, and TerraEm is his return to what is really important. His varied background is an asset to help understand the complexity of the climate change problem.
