A new partner in the race against time: Foundation Alliance for Development and Climate

We bring our message to the world through partners with strong communications, such as the Alliance for Development and Climate and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). Since fall 2018, the Alliance has been working towards the goal of linking development cooperation and international climate protection through the tool of voluntary offsetting of greenhouse gases.

We want to carry out reforestation on a large scale, because: Extensive planting of new trees is an effective way to capture CO2. It serves as a time saver in the fight against climate change.


We enable associations, clubs, teams, individual athletes and companies to participate and become active themselves: for example, through climate tickets (the option to purchase tree seedlings when buying a ticket for a sports event), green memberships, fundraising runs, deposit donations, placing a tree donation box at the ticket office. This is how we make climate protection suitable for everyday life and integrate simple but effective action into the sports industry. Be part of it and get active or contact us .
