The aim of the non-profit association "GermanZero", founded in 2019, is a climate-neutral Germany until 2035. founder Heinrich Strößenreuther is known to Berliners as the initiator of the referendum bicycle. At his side is an active pool of over 150 volunteer professionals from the fields of science, communication and culture such as Jan Delay or Joko Winterscheidt.
In November 2019 GermanZero invited about 30 German environmental and policy experts to a 48-hour climate policy future workshop. The findings from this workshop form the basis of the present 1.5-degree climate plan. This plan is so far the only comprehensive and sufficiently consistent climate plan available for Germany.
