What is Climate Ticket?

The congress in Joburg, the romantic weekend at the Gold Coast, the hiking-trip in the Drakensberge or the surf-holiday in Durban – where ever you fly, you have a good reason to enter the plane. But every kilometre you spend above the clouds has an effect on our climate. We heat up our atmosphere.

By burning the kerosene while flying the engines of the plane produce CO2 which changes our climate.

During a flight every passenger produces 250 grams of CO2 per kilometre!

We all know how climate change effects our environment and our every day life. There are enough reasons to take responsibility if we cannot avoid certain things like flying.

Climate Ticket Cape Town offers compensation on a local basis which was created according to the world wide acting organisations for climate-protection “myclimate” and “atmosfair”.

Off-set your carbon footprint caused by aviation, mitigate climate change and simultaneously support disadvantaged people and communities in Cape Town.

Have a look at our world map and estimate your own carbon footprint. Compensate it by donating the indicated amount or just support the projects with the amount you wish. You can compensate 1 tonne of CO2 by supporting a project with 300 ZAR. The three projects you can support via Climate Ticket Cape Town are:

Abalimi Logo
Abalimi started in 1982 as a township food gardening project of Catholic Welfare and Development in Cape Town. Over three decades Abalimi grew into a substantial NGO supporting thousands of home gardens and many community gardens with training, fieldwork support, and subsidised resources.

Seed Logo 100
SEED started as a kind of Spin-off from Abalimi, when Robina McCurdy birthed it as a pilot project in 1998. During the last 14 years Leigh Brown has pioneered the work of SEED from a small pilot into a national program and the continuously growing Rocklands Urban Abundance Centre at Rocklands Primary School.

Climate Ticket Cape Town is a project of the Agenda 21-Partnership Aachen-Cape Town. The partnership between these two cities, one in South Africa and one in Germany, is based on the principles of global sustainability by creating partnerships at a local level to eradicate extreme poverty and hunger, and to ensure environmental sustainability.

Members of local government and non-governmental organisations of both cities have worked together on different projects since 1999 which foster sustainable development on both sides. Thanks to Climate Ticket Aachen, which exists since 2009, people in Aachen have off-set their carbon footprints by funding various projects within the partnership.
