In past centuries great explorers like Christopher Columbus, Vasco da Gama and Alexander von Humboldt discovered and mapped numerous sites and secrets of the world.



Nowadays millions of tourists travel the continents to see and admire creations of nature and mankind. Meanwhile, driven by a sense of urgency, it's time to start a new journey, country by country, and make new observations. This time, to discover how our planet and it's inhabitants deal with climate change.

Movies can make a high impact in raising awareness. They can make the difference and move people to do something. Our mission is - almost like a grand journalistic expedition - to video document both the traces and consequences of climate change as the human responses to it.

Watch our video’s and be informed about the regional impact of climate change and the way both citizen, organizations and governments try to counteract.

Alexander von Humboldt
Alexander von Humboldt
Born in Prussia in 1769, the polymath Alexander von Humboldt anticipated climate change and space exploration.

"By felling the trees which cover the tops and sides of mountains, men in all climates seem to bring upon future generations two calamities at once; want of fuel and a scarcity of water."

"Die gefährlichste Weltanschauung ist die Weltanschauung derer, die die Welt nie angeschaut haben. (The most dangerous worldview is the worldview of those who have not viewed the world)"

Baron Alexander von Humboldt

JOIN AS AN AMBASSADOR
Now we're ready with setting up a formula we hope to involve people from different continents. In stead of working with facebook campaigns we would like to try a more personal approach. Cool Down The Planet invites you to be our new ambassador.
We aim to find motivated people, who help us collect subjects in their country or region that are suitable for future video reports. A next step is to engage a stakeholder that adopts this item. As a compensation we can offer you a 10% provision fee for every successful attempt. Interested in joining our global team? Get in touch!

JOIN AS A STAKEHOLDER
If you as a company or organization get inspiration from this, be a stakeholder and adopt a next video! Help us identify and expose the real consequences of climate change and global warming.
Moreover: let's show the transitions towards a zero emission society. We hope to achieve enough support to finance this undertaking - which is in fact a multi-annual journey through the new reality.
Consider to be a stakeholder. Get in touch!
