Europeans for Climate Association 

The “Europeans For Climate Association (ECA)” is committed to climate-neutral business in Europe. It was founded in spring 2020 and is based in Heidelberg. 

People from different sectors of society such as scientists, media representatives, actors, doctors, psychologists, entrepreneurs, physiotherapists, interpreters, creative consultants and many more are involved in the ECA.  

In the ”Europeans For Climate Association“ members find a voluntary and non-profit community working to achieve climate-neutral business in Europe. 

Reasons why we founded the Europeans for Climate Association: 

  • The 20 warmest years ever measured are in the last 22 years (as of 2018), the five warmest of them were the years 2016, 2019, 2015, 2017 and 2018.
  • The warming is accelerating: The rate of increase of 0.13 Celsius (0.03) per decade is almost twice as great as that between 1906 and 2005.
  • In 2019, global warming reached an increase of 0.18 Celsius per decade. It runs considerably faster than all known warming phases of the Earth's Modern Age for 66 million years.
  • For everyone who still has doubts: Myths and fake news about climate change
