We are developing a model for social change, powered by empathy.
Climate change is one of the most urgent threats, yet it feels far away for to many people. We are Before It’s Too Late (BITL), a nonprofit initiative founded by MIT graduate students to leverage arts, technology and science to ignite urgency and collaboration toward addressing climate change. #beforeitstoolate
MIT meets Florida to create an initiative
at the intersection of art, technology and science
We are harnessing the ancient art of storytelling and the power of visualization to shift perspectives and paradigms. We are partnering with artists to bring experiences to life.
We have positioned ourselves at the forefront of media and edtech innovation to elicit maximal interactivity and engagement. We are leveraging technology to empower the new generation of leaders.
We are collaborating with MIT and other research institutions to implement the latest insights on communication, solutions, design and motivation. We test, iterate and publish tools so they can spread.

Take our 7day #ClimateAwakening challenge
We invented the 7-day challenge to help people take that first step in practicing being eco-conscious citizens. We also believe that before we can try to change the world, we have to start by changing ourselves.
