Max Zero Impact

Dutch climate heroes unite!




Max Zero Impact


A three-stage inspiration program for anyone who wants to tackle the climate crisis faster and more effectively.

COP26 is behind us. The challenge is clear. We should not wait for governments to secure our future. But where governments are trailing behind, lots of us are already convinced: we can change climate change … if WE start NOW.

Because whatever our leaders did of did not agree one, let’s agree on this: if we as a young generation do not take action ourselves then nothing anyone else will matter. That’s why we created our special Youth Program MAX ZERO IMPACT with support of the MDT Utrecht.


What is Max Zero Impact?

First of all – Max Zero Impact is a strange combination of words, chosen to make you think. Zero impact – that’s not what we want to achieve? Max impact – maximal impact, we dig that! What do we want Zero of? Ah, a zero net future! Zero emissions that are not compensated for anywhere else. No use of resource without giving back.

Max. Zero. Impact. Exclamation mark.

So Max Zero Impact is a training program for young climate activists. Because if we want to realize a ‘net zero’ future, we have to make the most of our time and effort, just like the speakers we put on stage during TEDxUtrecht.

Join our Climate Strategy Bootcamp for sustainably active (or wanting to become) young people and students.

Who can join?

We have room for 150 young climate ambassadors who are concerned about our future and who want to commit themselves (even) more or even more effectively to the climate in their own environment.

Do you want to attend these free events and expand your network with 150 other young climate heroes?

Then sign up now!

TRAINING PROGRAM (more to follow soon)

We are currently working behind the scenes on the TEDxUtrecht Countdown program and the Max Zero Impact training program.

In addition to our announced climate heroes above, you can expect Extinction Rebellion, sustainable challenge winners from the Hogeschool van Amsterdam and Utrecht Campus Challenge and other inspiring young role models to be part of the program. Although many young people will be recruited through Utrecht University and Hogeschool, you will also meet students from the rest of the country, from active people at Green Offices, to national board members or campaigners of more (inter)nationally active climate heroes.
