Climate Fresk / Climate Pitch / 2tonnes Follow-up

Resources and ideas 
to move forward

You participated in the Climate Fresk, the 2tonnes workshop, or attended a Climate Pitch with us, where we exchanged a wealth of information!

This page aims to provide you with further ideas for individual and collective actions (Chapter 1) and to share essential resources from the workshop/conference, as well as additional material, to enhance and expand your understanding (Chapters 2 and 3).

Feel free to revisit this page, as we will update it regularly.

We also welcome any feedback or suggestions you might have!


What can we do?

> If you haven't done so already, consider measuring your carbon footprint. It's an insightful exercise to understand your primary emissions sources and to gain ideas on where to begin or continue making changes: GermanyFrance, Switzerland, and UK versions.

>  Educate ourselves and talk about it!​

Every Climate Fresk has a second chapter: If you're interested in becoming a workshop leader and are located in Munich, you can either sign up for the next session we organize or contact us for dedicated training. After completing this, you'll be equipped to use the tool independently to raise awareness.

If you want to use it on a private level only (friends, family, neighbors, ...), you can check out the upcoming training dates offered by the Climate Fresk.  

Important note: the public trainings conducted by the association are intended for private persons only and facilitated by volunteer trainers. At CHANGESthatMATTER we are professional trainers offering customized training and workshops for your organization.

>  Every job can contribute to climate action, explore Project Drawdown´s suggestions on how you can make a difference in your current role.

What actions can my company take? Reach out to us 😊. We are specialized in sustainable business transformation, and climate is part of it. We would be delighted to discuss this further with you!


Some information you might have encountered during the Workshop/Conference…

The 9 Planetary Boundaries
Scientists have identified specific planetary boundaries within which humanity can continue to develop and thrive for generations to come. Crossing these boundaries heightens the risk of triggering large-scale, abrupt, or irreversible environmental changes (source).

The IPCC report summary for policymakers 


The climate always changed, and a couple of degrees is not a big deal!

Yes, the climate has always undergone changes, but the speed at which Earth is warming up is unprecedented. There is a global consensus amongst scientists that this is due to the Greenhouse gases emitted by human activities (IPCC).  For context, there was only a 5°C difference between the ice age and 1850, during which the ocean level was 120 meters lower than today, allowing one to walk from Paris to London, and Northern Europe was covered in ice (source).

In the past 170 years, the average global temperature has increased by 1.2°C, which is about 15 times faster than the rate of natural global warming.

The Paris Agreement

The Paris Agreement's goal is to limit global warming to well below 2 degrees Celsius, preferably to 1.5 degrees Celsius, relative to pre-industrial levels. To have a chance of reaching that goal, it's crucial to significantly reduce our emissions, as we have a limited "carbon budget" remaining. By 2050, our goal is to reduce average emissions to 2 tons of CO2 equivalent per person per year. Currently, the average carbon footprint in Germany is approximately 10.78 tons of CO2 equivalent per person per year (source).

Climate Justice

Responsibility and impact vary among different groups; not everyone bears the same responsibility nor will face identical consequences. This disparity has led to calls for climate justice, focusing on “how different responses to climate change distribute harms and benefits, and who gets a role in forming those responses”. Read more on MIT- Climate Justice and/or OXFAM - Confronting carbon inequality.

What do 2 tons of CO2eq represent?

To put it in perspective, a round-trip flight from Berlin to New York City emits 2 tons of CO2 equivalent per person in economy class (calculator).

Want to deep dive into specific topics?

>  Explore Project Drawdown, the world’s leading resource for climate solutions​.

>  Have a play around the MIT online climate simulator to find out what’s needed to keep the world 2 degrees above pre-industrial levels.

>  Read the 9 propositions to decarbonise Europe by the Shift Project, a French climate think tank.

>  The Post Carbon Institute’s provides individuals and communities with the resources needed to understand and respond to the crises of the 21st century. Don´t miss their video, “300 Years of Fossil Fuels in 300 Seconds”.

>  For politics / economics lovers, Carbon Pulse offers news and insights on carbon markets, greenhouse gas pricing, and climate policy. Alternatively, CarbonBrief is a UK-based website with the latest updates in climate science, climate policy, and energy policy.

>  Engage with Count Us In, which suggests 16 ways to reduce your carbon footprint and inspire others to do the same.

> Biodiversity is a critical environmental issue – participate in a Biodiversity Collage (public session, or get in touch for an in-person workshop).
