We are in particularly challenging times, we are in the midst of a climate crisis. Many people feel powerless in the face of all these developments and this is exactly where we want to start with pro.earth. Let’s leave this helplessness behind and let’s start the action! Not alone but all together!
It’s clear: To limit global warming to two degrees, mankind must drastically reduce its CO2 emissions – and as quickly as possible. In the latest special report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), climate researchers published new figures on this.

pro.earth is a platform consisting of a social media area for active participation in the optimization of CO2 consumption and editorial content with a clear educational mission on the topic of climate change.
pro.earth is movement – on the one hand with the users‘ own initiative and challenging friends. On the other hand through a convincingly large climate crowd, that can help politics, industry and trade to find the right way!
THE CLIMATE CROWD
pro.earth connects people in the common pursuit of a more sustainable CO2-saving life and uses simple graphics to show the effects of our actions.
On pro.earth, every user can contribute ideas for improving the world’s climate; the most suitable ones are then evaluated via the platform and made available to everyone. I.e. the pro.earth community actively participates in the development process of CO2-reducing activities and then spreads them by inviting friends.
LET’S CHANGE THE WORLD TOGETHER!
Challenges cannot only be launched by individual users. Companies, organizations, or political administrations – from small communities to districts to states – can also invite to joint endeavors.
That’s how challenges can thus become competitions and even set new standards!
Users can also post classic posts with pictures and videos – like on Facebook or Instagram.
FAIR SOCIAL-MEDIA NETWORK
- Chronological presentation of the contents – 100 % data protection according to European laws!
- No manipulation of the shown content!

THE EDITORAL TEAM
The interactive social media area of pro.earth is framed by an information portal. Here, interesting facts and credible information are offered about environmental protection.
The editorial team consists of the basic team and a broad-based external team of authors with a Wikipedia-style permission model.
THE SCIENTIFIC ADVISORY BOARD
To ensure that pro.earth is not just an original web project, but actually initiates and represents real potential for change, a scientific advisory board is established to advise the pro.earth team.
In the furure the advisory board will works interdisciplinary and consists of persons coming from the fields of science, NGOs, economy and (former) politics. The advisory board should also be as international as possible and represent different age groups.

The PRO.EARTH Coin
Implemented in a CO2-friendly blockchain solution.
As part of the pro.earth project, on which CO2 is saved by the users, we will introduce a new cryptocurrency in the next few years. The pro.earth Coin is a new „crypto token“ that expresses the prevention of climate catastrophe in its own crypto currency.
Green Financing pure and simple, direct CO2 savings through the financed projects – and motivation of people to further CO2 savings. For every euro we save one ton of CO2.
