• What kind of subjects are suitable for Cool Down The Planet?
    We would like fo focus on three climate change related issues:

    1) The causes and consequences of climate change (observation).
    2) The way we seek to lower the risks posed by climatic change (adaptation).
    3) Actions to limit the magnitude or rate of global warming - like CO2 reduction (mitigation).

    The topics are supposed to have a journalistic relevance.
  • How about promotional video's: are they welcome too?
    Every reliable story about a significant climate change related subject is welcome, as long as it has a focus on the content - and not on the PR-issue :-).
    Our video's are simple and transparant. Some features:

    - One reporter starting with a short stand-upper.
    - One or two interviewees.
    - Some simple actions, caught on camera.
    - A dozen of covershots.

    The footage will be edited by us. Length of the output video's is 2-3 minutes.
  • Who is going to pay for the production? Can I sponsor this?
    We hope to achieve support from stakeholders, who like our initiative and recognize it as urgent and important. You can adopt a future video, to be recorded at any place in the world, for € 1000,-. Output video's will clearly show the credits.

    If you as a company or organization get inspiration from this, be a stakeholder and sponsor 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!

  • Can I be an ambassador and suggest an item?
    Sure, Cool Down the Planet invites you to be our ambassador!

    We aim to find motivated people, students or professionals, who help us collect subjects that are suitable for future video reports. The topics are supposed to have a journalistic relevance. A next step is to engage stakeholders that adopt the suggested video items. We offer a modest financial compensation for every successful attempt.

  • Can I offer my services as a cameraman or camerawoman?
    We intend to work with feelancers everywhere in the world. Cameramen are not only asked to shoot some video footage concerning the topic, but also to record a short 'stand-upper' on location. So you will be introduced as a reporter as well :-). Don't wory, together we will prepare the project.

    Our video's are simple and transparant. Some features:

    - One or two interviewees.
