Why we start this journey

In the course of the last decade it appeared that temperatures worldwide are rising faster than expected. Time to act! A team of Delft University of Technology delved into the question how they could contribute to combating global warming.

As a result – after some detours – finally the concept of a grand journalistic video expedition was born. Movies can make a high impact in raising awareness. They can make the difference and move people to do something. Why not start a videochannel that gives room for worldwide observatons, worries, and high energy to act? Why not try to document both the impact of climate change as the way people try to counteract!

Starting in the first quarter of 2019 we strive to launch an ever growing number of small and simple film projects around te world. TU Delft took the lead in launching and supporting this platform. Now we are looking for next partners and stakeholders to take up the flag and join us.

Global warming seems to move faster than we are. It threatens public health, the global economy, agricultural yields, social equality and many other aspects of life on earth. Tackling climate change is a global responsibility.

Both the public and private sector can play a decisive role. Our platform wants to give space to their desire to act and be part of an accountable community. So let’s start to publish video documents on Cool Down the Planet and show what’s going on.

When it comes to the funding: we hope a number of ‘cool’ partners will support our video mission. Would this ‘cool’ status suit your organization? Please consider to be a stakeholder and get in touch!

I am honored being afforded the opportunity to contribute to this interesting and promising tool!
