Ecodorp Boekel takes action to combat climate change and its impact.

On December 12, 2015 a historic climate agreement was signed in Paris. 195 countries agreed to actively combat global warming. The agreement is legally binding and has a concrete goal: to keep global warming well below 2 degrees Celsius, with 1.5 degrees as a target.

Climate change affects the whole world. Global warming is already having an impact on the daily lives and livelihoods of millions of people worldwide and this will only increase in the future.

The costs of weather extremes are already huge (€1 billion damage in the south-east of the Netherlands with one hailstorm). Heavy storms in America in August 2017 cost hundreds of billions of dollars in damage. Only a small part of it was insured.
