Looking for Sustainable projects

While we are in the USA, we would love to visit other projects and learn from each other. In case you are involved with an inspiring and sustainable project, please get in touch. We would love to visit! We will be travelling train and other forms of alternative transport to visit several States. Please let us know before the training so we can catch up in Minneapolis.

Flying with awareness

This event will take place in the USA, while CarbonPirates is based in Europe. We have always advocated an ‘aware-flying’ policy, where you only take flights that are absolutely necessary. Based on that I have not taken any flights for over two years, and have traveled by bike, train and car as a more Sustainable alternative.

However, we feel that this event is such an opportunity that the benefits outweigh the negatives of flying. We will make sure to offset all the CO2 that was produced during this trip. Our captain will take a direct flight to reduce emissions from landing and take off. We are currently investigating the possibilities to go on an overland trip by train to raise awareness about our mission, utilizing the most out of our flight.

What is Climate Reality Project?

The Climate Reality Project was founded by former US Vice President Al Gore, as a way to speed up the action that is required. Urgent action to cut greenhouse gas emissions and speed the global shift to renewables. Urgent action to halt the Trump Administration’s radical fossil fuel agenda. Urgent action to make world leaders strengthen and honor their Paris Agreement commitments.

It works by empowering people to become activists, equipped with the tools, training, and network to fight for solutions and drive change planet-wide. So far they have trained over 19.000 people to become Climate Reality Leaders, reaching over 150 countries. It is a powerful movement that is growing by the day.
