Climate Planet Foundation

Mission

Changing the tides on climate change can appear insurmountable. But change starts from the bottom-up. With individuals raising their voice, casting their votes, changing their habits. 

Through innovations in digital education, the Climate Planet Foundation seeks to empower young people all over the world with the knowledge, tools and solutions needed to stabilize our climate and protect the Earth’s resources.

Climate Planet Foundation supports projects that can help transform the minds, hearts and habits of individuals to a low-carbon lifestyle. We consider climate change awareness and education an important tool to inspire individuals to take action. Ultimately, we want the low-carbon lifestyle choice to be the best choice.

Breaking Boundaries

22 April 2021 Netflix announced a new feature documentary, Breaking Boundaries: The Science of Our Planet launching on Netflix this Summer. The film is supported financially by Climate Planet Foundation. Watch the trailer here

Breaking Boundaries: The Science of Our Planet follows the scientific journey of world-renowned scientist Professor Johan Rockström, narrated by Sir David Attenborough and produced by award-winning, UK based filmmakers, Silverback Films. 

A special 10-minute preview of the film was shown to 40 world leaders at President Biden’s 2021 Climate Summit on April 22, as well as live-streamed globally from the U.S. State Department.

Breaking Boundaries tells the story of the most important scientific discovery of our time - that humanity has pushed Earth beyond the boundaries that have kept Earth stable for 10,000 years, since the dawn of civilisation.

The 75-minute film takes the audience on a journey of discovery of planetary thresholds we must not exceed, not just for the stability of our planet, but for the future of humanity. It offers up the solutions we can and must put in place now if we are to protect Earth’s life support systems.

Johan Rockström discusses the film with Sir David Attenborough in a blog on the Netflix Newsroom.

Monday 26 April 2021 David Attenborough did the opening of the first ever Nobel Prize Summit entitled Our Planet Our Future. David’s address was followed by a 5 min piece from the film and a talk from Johan Rockström.

The future’s not determined, the future is in our hands.

The Climate Planet Film

With the Climate Planet film, centuries of climate science are condensed into a 36-minute tour-de-force of compelling and comprehensible facts and visuals, narrated by renowned Danish meteorologist and climate communicator, Jesper Theilgaard. 

The film targets viewers from all walks of life but is especially suitable for the younger generation who will lead us into the coming decades of decisive change. 

Underpinned by a message of hope for a greener and better future, the film leaves audiences with a better understanding of the fundamental conditions for life on Earth and how humans are changing these conditions and also the solutions required over the coming decades.

What you can do

The surprisingly simple steps we can take to avoid the worst of climate crisis.

We have any number of opportunities to slow down climate change – perhaps even reverse it. The book "If We Act Now" (In Danish "Hvis Vi Vil") offers a glimpse of how to do just that. Not based on wishful thinking, but on sober realism. As the title of the book suggests, it is indeed possible to curb the effects of climate change, if we genuinely want to. This optimistic, enlightening and richly illustrated book takes the reader on a journey around the globe to provide insight into existing solutions to the climate crisis.

The Climate Planet Experience 2017-2018

A traveling globe

The Climate Planet Experience was a unique cinematic experience, which allowed live audiences in selected European cities to step into a 20-meter tall traveling globe and experience the dramatic evolution of our climate first-hand. Funded by the Climate Planet Foundation and with the help of real-time footage from NASA’s satellites, the globe took 145,000 people on a unique educational journey during 2017-2018. 

The facts and imagery from the Climate Planet Experience has since evolved into the Climate Planet film, enabling the climate education of the traveling globe to reach a much wider audience.
