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.

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.

Our projects

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. 

Inspiring climate awareness book

September 3, 2020 Climate Planet Foundation launched an easy-to-read and inspiring climate awareness book "Hvis Vi Vil" (December 2020 the English version "If We Act Now" is published). The book is anchored in the latest science, and provides a fact-based overview of the climate change issue, cutting through the confusion and providing concrete do’s and don’ts to save the climate. Aimed at bringing the climate change debate to a more actionable level, the book is written and produced by Zetland and funded by Climate Planet Foundation. Published by Gads Forlag.

The Climate Science Curriculum

Today, climate education in public schools is inadequate and climate literacy is globally poor. With our extensive climate science educational programme we will help kids develop a better relationship with their world, inspire them to live differently and influence others with their insights and perspective. Read more.

The Climate Planet film

This film is a scientific “tour-de-force” in an easily accessible and engaging format. Going back to very beginnings of the creation of our planet. It shows how our climate relies on a complex balance of forces and how humans are effectively upsetting this balance.

From PPM concentrations, Keeling curves, gulf streams, methane gasses, PH values, IPCC and the Rio convention, the film is a condensed encyclopedia into all you need to know about our climate and what it takes to help stabilize it.

Breaking the Boundaries

The film “Breaking the Boundaries, the science behind Our Planet” will focus global attention on the planetary emergency and the necessity for science-based action. In production by Silverback Films, the creators of the Emmy Award-winning Netflix blockbuster Our Planet. Netflix will release the film globally in over 170 countries. Scheduled for launch 2021.

The Climate Planet Experience 2017-2018

Climate Planet Foundation funded the traveling globe “The Climate Planet Experience”. Here people experienced the dramatic evolution of our climate in 40 minutes. The Climate Planet Experience visited Aarhus, Copenhagen, Bonn and Utrecht and provided an eye-opening account of our climate and the challenges we are facing, now and in the future. Read more.

The Climate Science Curriculum

Fighting climate change with education

Education is one of the strongest drivers to motivate attitude and behavioural change.

Using the climate science literacy (CSL) framework developed as part of a doctoral research project, we teach kids in secondary schools everything they need to know about the natural climate system in equilibrium, how the climate system changes naturally, the human role of climate change and what actions we can take to change it. And we’ve put this into 3D interactive games to make sure every kid has a chance to learn about climate change and recognise the important role they play.

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.
