We are in Glasgow

Even though we cannot all be physically in the Glasgow climate top we can be there through visual proof of our actions every day in real life. The power of citizen’s initiatives that make a difference has been a theme that got us together on a world scale through Youth4Planet, Earthbeat and AiREAS projects. Likewise we try to involve our youngest generations by connecting to their educational centers and directly through their initiatives. We invite all to produce a short video contribution.

During the bike challenge from Luxembourg to Glasgow, via Eindhoven we also got many statements of young and younger people along the trail. These will be used again during our presence in Glasgow. Look at this preview…..

Self aware citizens that take climate action

Today I videotaped a few people in Eindhoven with their short 30 seconds to 1 minute pitch about what they do, their motivation and climate impact. Enjoy the citizen’s empowerment and engagement. Their messages will be collected and taken to the climate conference in Glasgow, COP26.

1. Meet Joyce. She organizes a climate festival once a year.

2. Meet Peter. He just turns things around. If I can throw litter on the ground, I can pick it up too. It is a choice. If millions of people make this positive choice, the world will become a great and clean place again…

3. Meet Eva. She is member of the city council and explains her political and personal commitment to climate actions…

4. Meet Rik. Together with his neighbors they set up a car sharing cooperation. 15 people, just 2 cars!

5. Meet Roxanne. She enjoys to help people in awareness of their own potential in climate actions. She uses a game.

6. Meet Joris. He used to be angry and disappointed, until he joined a group in which he can make a positive difference.

7. Meet Anuj. He invites people to talk about trash management in order to see if help is needed.
