Since our inception in 2006, we have always believed that achieving impact quietly is more important than spending time blowing our own trumpet. However, examples sometimes help you to see whether one of our offerings could be useful to you, so here are some testimonials we have gathered from past participants of our expeditions and workshops.

This is what participants said about our expeditions and workshops

"The journey moved me deeply and raised a lot of new questions about the relationship between man and nature. The format is very special: the small group, the dialogue between generations, the strong rapport between scientists and participants. It guarantees that you really do learn a lot." (Dr. Arend Oetker)

"For me, it has been one of the most powerful trips I have made in my life. I have learned a lot, and the programme has been just fantastic." (Elsa Bonnier)

“There is no time for anything incremental. Our children’s generation must see a fossil-fuel free world – full stop.” (Participant, Greenland, 2018)

"It has been an extraordinary experience. Greenland is the perfect place to witness the overwhelming power of nature and the importance of succeeding in one of the biggest challenges humanity has ever faced. Scientific knowledge, dialogues, fun and emotions have made the expedition one of the most valuable trips of my life." (Angela Morelli)

“Learning that this century will see hundreds of millions of people being displaced due to climate change, we changed the mandate of the Good Energies Foundation from ‘access to clean energy to alleviate poverty’ to ‘mitigating climate change to alleviate future poverty’.”
- Participant, Greenland, 2008

“The process provided a safe space for me to address issues that are really important to me. There was a kinship within the group of past experiences as well as current challenges, but most importantly I left the process with confidence about my future journey.”
- Participant, Botswana retreat, 2011

"I loved the concept of the field session: changing from theory to practice worked very well."
- Participant, Field Session I in Hamburg, 2018

"It was a great combination of people who brought in different perspectives."
- Participant, Field Session I in Hamburg, 2018
