Naturefriends Climate Fund – My contribution to climate justice
Climate change has a dramatic impact on ecosystems and biodiversity - thus, on the lives of people - which is already visible in many parts of the world. It especially affects countries of the Global South, the population of which contributes very little to global greenhouse gas emissions.
Emissions caused by air traffic play a key role in climate change. Although just a minor share of the global population actively takes part in air traffic, the latter makes up at least five percent of human-made global warming.
The Naturefriends Climate Fund provides all Naturefriends with the opportunity of supporting climate protection projects by African Naturefriends as a compensation for trips with the plane or car - and thus of contributing personally to more climate justice. 100% of the contribution payments go into specific local measures to mitigate the impact of climate change and/or contribute to climate protection.
The amount of the payments is based on the greenhouse gas emissions caused by the plane or car trips. Further personal donations are welcome too, of course!
