Big social challenges such as climate change ask for strong forces to take on this challenge together. Thanks to our long-term partnerships our projects concerning climate change can evolve and spark long-lasting impact. Since 2007 myblueplanet together with numerous partners and volunteers has been committed to climate protection.
Partners are more than means to an end for us. We aim at finding authentic partners, who share our vision of a future planet and who would like to create something extraordinary for climate protection and future generations.
