Getting the Climatexchange calendar automatically showing up in the calendar of you email, so that you always have it on hand is really easy.

These are the steps for the latest versions of Thunderbird or outlook, however the steps should be fairly similar on older versions. If you are able to get the calendar on an  older version, and the steps are different, or if it does not work, please contact us, and we will be more then happy to add these steps, or help you wherever we can.

Thunderbird Step 1: Copying the calendar location.

Go to the calendar page on climateXchange, and bring up the calendar view. In the middle of the calendar view there is a small square button  that when scrolled over says 'suscride to icalendar.'

Right click on this button, and then click where is says 'copy link location' (which will automatically copy the links location.

Then right click in the left hand column where it says 'calendar, then 'add new calendar'

A window will pop up which is where we add the copied url into our calendar. The first question you will be asked will be about where you want your calendar to be stored. Click on computer, then click next. It will then ask you to name your calendar and add a colour and email. Name your calendar ClimateXchange, then click next.

It will then promt you to paste the url that you copied from the climateXchange calendar. To do this, either right click, then press paste, or hold doen your ctrl key, and press v. This will paste the url. Press done, and you will now have your calendar ready to look at whenever you need.
