SV Waldhof Mannheim 07

Project: climate ticket / Herzbuwe jersey

Supported project: school project in Nigeria (Zenaga Foundation) / Mangrove reforestation in Nigeria (Forstfreunde)

Project start: season 21/22

Waldhof Mannheim was one of the first clubs to sign our statement in 2019, and for the new 21/22 season, the third-division club is tackling climate protection in two ways. Firstly, 3€ will be donated to a school project in Akwa Ibom in Nigeria through the sale of each jersey. There, the Zenaga Foundation is implementing social aspects for us in addition to planting trees, a tree nursery and equipping the school with solar lamps.

On the other hand, from this season onwards, every ticket purchase will include the opportunity to buy a climate ticket for one euro, through which a mangrove will be planted in a mangrove planting project, also in Akwa Ibom in Nigeria. This project is implemented by our new project partner Forstfreunde. You can find more information about the project here.

Initiator: Carina Wimmer

Supported projects: reforestation in Kenya (WWF)

Project start: 2021

The 2021 Summer Games are all about sustainability this year. However, the CO2 emissions caused by air travel will still be produced. Athletes from Germany see it as their responsibility to practice their beloved sport and still protect the climate. Therefore, they want to make an effective contribution on their own initiative and support a WWF project for reforestation in Kenya.

This is how the idea of the sports-centered “climate market” was born: from the donations, trees are planted for a positive climate effect, and in return, athletes offer creative, attractive and even unusual services.

Rowing national team

Project: Rowing forest

Initiators: Carlotta Nwajide and Fini Sturm

Supported project: reforestation in Kenya (WWF)

In the 2021 Olympic season, many rowers are over the German average of 10 tons of CO2 emissions only with their flights. The round-trip flight to the Olympic Games in Tokyo alone emits around 6 tons of CO2. The rowers of the national team want to serve as a role model and make a positive contribution to climate protection. The donations come from the rowers of the national rowing team. Everyone donates voluntarily and at their own discretion.  In addition, other rowers, sports fans and interested people are invited to donate as well! The goal is to collect an amount of 20.021€ until the end of this Olympic year. Sports for Future will double every donation!

Georg-Kerschensteiner-Schule Holdorf

Project: charity run on April 30th to May 2nd 

Supported project: Partner school in Nigeria with Zenaga Foundation

A colorful school – like its logo: The Georg-Kerschensteiner-Oberschule reaches out to its students in many ways, even in Corona times. From 30.04. to 2.05. they organized a fundraising run, where over several days all students were invited to walk, run, jog, measure their running distances and “go green”. With this campaign, the GKS gave the starting signal for the cooperation with Sports for Future. The sporty young people were looking for sponsors who would pay them a certain amount of money for the (kilo)meters they ran. In the process, almost 3010€ were collected! All donations will go to a reforestation project of the Zenaga Foundation and Sports4Trees. The GKS has chosen a project that is connected to a school in Nigeria (in the state of Akwa Ibom).
