Katie Patrick is an environmental engineer and software designer based in San Francisco. Katie works at the intersection of environmental behaviour, gamification, and technology, tackling complex environmental issues by applying data-driven game and behaviour-change techniques.
Passionate about the power of gaming to save the planet, Katie is an author and podcast host, How to Save the World: How to make changing the world the greatest game ever played.
She has collaborated with UNEP, NASA JPL, Goggle, Magic Leap, IES, Institute for the future, and Stanford. Katie’s now founded multiple climate-focused platforms and startups.
These days Katie is busy building a “Fitbit for the Planet”, to show people real-time data from sensors and satellites to teach them their environmental footprint – CO2, water, waste, pollution – just as a Fitbit shows the number of steps taken.
