How we work

The NASA Openscapes Mentor Community is collaborating to create this Cookbook, with an eye towards how others could collaborate with us in the future.

The Openscapes Approach Guide describes how we work, including creating space and place, having a growth mindset, psychological safety, and continual learning, practice, and iteration. It also has our code of conduct and an overview of some of the workflows and tooling we use.

We believe open practices can accelerate data-driven solutions and increase diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging in science. These are critical to uncovering enduring science-based solutions faster, as well as for the well-being and resilience of research communities. We work towards kinder science.

Our style of working is greatly influenced by:
