Climatebase launched the first cohort of the fellowship in February 2022. While it fulfilled a very real need for a community which would enable climate professionals from around the world to learn and grow together, the Climatebase team were aware of the potential challenges associated with online education. While it brought many benefits, such as global audience, the online model also presented some significant barriers to collaborative learning, with average completion and engagement rates of just 15%, due to limited peer support and accountability. Despite these concerns, the new program was hugely successful, as the high satisfaction rates proved.
In February 2021, Climatebase turned to Superlinked’s networking app to support and foster meaningful peer relationships throughout the cohort. The result? An engaged community experience, with Superlinked as a key resource for building highly relevant one-to-one connections and driving high levels of engagement.
Over the course of the program, Superlinked’s app facilitated over 300 introductions, with an average quality score of 4.3 out of 5. This played a central role in the fellowship earning the best satisfaction scores in the sector!
The response to the Superlinked app was so positive that the end of the first program did not mean the end of networking… Months after the formal program concluded, fellows from the first cohort continued to opt in for new introductions!
With the second cohort recent onboarded onto the app, even more climate professionals are enjoying the opportunity to match with and meet each other.
