Be our regional ambassador!
Be our regional ambassador!

It started in The Netherlands, a country at risk of being flooded by the sea within one or two centuries: the idea of a worldwide project, to map the new reality of climate change and report on ways to counter it.

As a not-for-profit foundation based in the Netherlands, we want to commit as many people as possible.

We like to offer you an opportunity to be our regional ambassador and help us generate local videos and committed presentations. Feel free to ask for more information!

    Cool Down the Planet is run by two young students Julia Kenul and Juliëtte van Til, and supervised by New Energy TV. We are based in the Netherlands.
  • Will you publish my video about global warming?
    Yes, we would be happy to reveive your input. You can send your video file to our email address. We prefer to give it our own 'fingerprint' by adding a CDTP banner and mayby limit the length of the video.

  • Can I be your correspondent and suggest topics?
    Of course, be invited as a regional correspondent!

    We aim to find motivated students and young professionals, who help us find subjects that are suitable for future video reports. The topics must relate to climate change and have journalistic relevance.
