Be the change you want to see in the world

44 people have committed to fight global warming

We need to do this together. Read below what you can do and join!

Save energy

There are several ways for saving energy. An additional advantage is that in most cases you save money as well. Using renewable energy – energy collected from sunlight, wind, water… – may be the most opportune, long-term solution.

Travel smart

Needless to say that mobility contributes significantly to the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere. Consider not to fly or alternatives like the train. Drive less, carpool or even better, make use of your bike or public transportation to go to work. Work more from home and attend conferences online whenever possible.

Refuse, reduce, reuse, repurpose, recycle

Buy less (new) products and consider environmental friendly ones. Reuse bottles, recycle paper, reduce your waste. Avoid products with a lot of packaging. And many more…

Plant a tree

Planting trees or growing your own fruit and vegetables, can help reducing global warming. They consume CO2 during the process of photosynthesis and lower its presence in the atmosphere.

Eat local, seasonal food

Eating fruit and vegetables is important for your health. But transportation of food is expensive in terms of environmental impact. Eat as much local, seasonal fruit and vegetables as possible. They taste best, too.

Eat less no meat

Meat production costs a significant amount of natural resources and produces greenhouse gases, like methane (CH4). Skipping meat two days a week or eating less each day gets you far in reducing your ecological footprint.


Don’t check your email, Instagram, Facebook or Twitter every 5 minutes. It all consumes energy. Less surfing saves you time, too. A median web page loads in about 2.5 Mb, this one in about 45 kb (or 55 times less) to save energy!


Of course, we all want to live our lives as comfortably as possible. But other people who will live after us or elsewhere in the world want that as well. There are many more things you can do, but you can do what you can do best starting here: committing to try!

I know I am not perfect, no one is doing all of the above. But I join because I want to do what I can to fight together. And because I care about the future, the future of my friends and family.
