Who is Outrider?

Outrider believes that the global challenges we face together must be solved by working together.

Among the greatest threats to the future of humankind are nuclear weapons and global climate change. Outrider makes the bold claim that both threats can be overcome — and not just by policy makers but by people with the right tools and inspiration.


Outrider believes in the power of an informed, engaged public.

We envision a world where people live without fear of climate-induced catastrophe or nuclear war. The first step to taking meaningful action is to understand these challenges. Outrider's interactive features and in-depth articles help you learn what's at stake and how you can be a part of the solution.
