EMERJI is a set of emoji for climate change and emergency response. The world is experiencing increased extreme weather and disaster as we feel the effects of climate change. Emerji helps us talk about these global threats and experiences through the language we use to talk about everything else ... emoji. Emerji uses emoji as a readily- accessible communication tool, popularizing disaster reporting through existing social media and texting platforms. Emerji are a free and open-source project. Emerji are currently available on the Apple App Store as a free sticker app. With this you can add Emerji to text messages and share the icons with friends.
