Showing hot problems and cool solutions
There is growing awareness among the younger generations that the fight against global warming is a universal project. The world is in need of a joint approach and we hope to offer a new instrument. Cool Down The Planet is a journalistic video platform that aims to map the regional impacts of climate change and show human abilities to find solutions.
Watch both your and our videos and be informed about the manifestations of climate change and the way citizen, organizations and governments try to counteract.
It’s our intention to, country by country, create a network of:
• Junior reporters
Starting in the summer of 2019, we are endeavouring to launch an ever growing number of small and basic film projects around the world. Let's go for it and give it a try!

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 in the first place to commit young reporters and correspondents. Though more experienced professionals will be welcomed too on our semi-professional platform.
We like to offer you an opportunity to be a freelance camera-journalist-reporter and as a one-mans-band produce the footage for future videos in your region. You will be compensated with a modest fee. Feel free to ask for more information!
