Great!

That you are curious who we are!

WHO WE ARE

With the CLIMATE BET we would like to build a movement of at least 1 million people to send the message: We need, and we want better climate action! More specifically, we are saving 1 million tons of CO2 to show that we are taking the first step ourselves according to our claim “Let’s do it!“. In order to start the CLIMATE BET in the first place, we formalised our idea and got others enthusiastic about it.

BACKING: The patron

"We need such initiatives. Initiatives that encourage us and make us act. After all, we all need to do more to protect the climate. The international community, Germany, as well as companies and citizens.”

(Prof. Dirk Messner, Federal Environment Agency)

LEAD & ORGANISATION: 3 Fürs Klima e.V. (3 for climate)

In February 2020, we founded the association "3 fürs Klima". We do not want to wait until 2050. We can already act, today, now. We want to be ahead of politics when it comes to achieving the Paris agreement and that’s exactly what we are doing. We are climate neutral. Three steps help us get there: improve your own carbon footprint, compensate for the rest and increase your personal handprint, i.e. your social impact (e.g., using the CLIMATE BET). Let's do it!

PARTNER & ORGANISATION: FindingSustainia

The Think & Action Lab FindingSustainia is a project of Think Tank 30 of the German Association Club of Rome. The founders Santa and Anna are part of the CLIMATE BET. FindingSustainia started organising challenges around the topic of sustainability in 2014. Santa and Anna "Meyer & Meyer" not only reported on their own experiments but also interviewed and questioned experts about the background and practical implementation possibilities. In 2017, they won the GLS Blog Award for the best German sustainability blog.

CONSULTANCY & CONTROL: Advisory board

The CLIMATE BET advisory board advises us on how to achieve the target of the bet: 1 million tons of CO2 reduction by 1 million people by the 2021 climate conference in Glasgow. It ensures that we use our funds sparingly and in a way that serves the target of the bet. The donations are deposited in a fiduciary account, which can only be used with the approval of the advisory board of the CLIMATE BET. The donations will be forwarded directly to the respective climate protection projects providers, minus bank charges, and a maximum of one Euro to finance the CLIMATE BET (though the latter will be incrementally reduced). The remaining amount, which is no longer needed for further financing after the end of the campaign, will be divided equally among the climate protection projects.

INITIAL FINANCING: Bet sponsors

Our bet sponsors make the bet possible in the first place. We have asked related parties for a loan as starting capital for the CLIMATE BET. These people said: "Let’s do it!" and became bet patrons. They give us the necessary financial leeway and motivate us to go on. We thank our sponsors for their commitment and trust.

COMMUNICATIONS: tippingpoints

The agency that ensures the success of our communication: tippingpoints. Tipping points are decisive moments when developments take new paths. Since 2012, tippingpoints has been finding these turning points to motivate people to act sustainably. "We understand sustainability. We understand the complexity of biodiversity, environmental and climate protection, or the decarbonisation of mobility. And we implement them ourselves. We go to work by bike, we use the train instead of a car, and we are always happy about Fairtrade coffee, which keeps us awake for more good ideas".

PROGRAMMING: zwo3

Web developers since 2000 with a focus on climate protection, sustainability, and the mobility transition. Note: It’s pure coincidence that zwo3 uses Typo3 when working for “3 fürs Klima”.

SPREAD THE WORD: Cooperation partners

Many people and organisations have been campaigning for better climate action for many years, even for decades. We ask them whether they want to support us by spreading the CLIMATE BET and, thus, by creating a network for even more effective climate action. In order to send a strong political message to the negotiating states in Glasgow, the following organisations have already replied: "Let's do it!”.
