A good and important idea, but I would like to see more detail here: what exactly will the platform look like? Without this detail and nuance, it is difficult to make more specific recommendations about this proposal. This proposal hits on an important theme in communicating climate change. People need to feel that the issue is salient and personal. The only way to do that is to connect to humans and the way they live their lives. While we like to think we can have empathy for animals and plants, there are challenges to doing that as we really don't know what a plant or animal feels or experiences (unless we anthropomophize them). But creating a platform where people can share how climate change impacts them directly will create needed awareness.
