Turning point • Investor can choose: invest e.g. 10.000.000 € in his own country and implement e.g. 10 windturbines with it • or invest that 10 million € in a developing country where they can put probably 20 windturbines (cheaper labor, more sun/wind/...) • hence generate more CO2e for the same amount invested • Conclusion: • there is a transfer of money, know-how and technologies from • ﬁrst world countries / non-sustainably developed societies to developing countries • Who wants to join us ? by CarbonIsMoney.com by CarbonSymphony.org
Turning point • People that still use oil/kerosene lamps can get this kit • Solar kit if paid for by • a. revenues from the sale of CO2e-certiﬁcates • b. grants for development aid • Turning point: nobody on the planet can get light / electricity = education, additional income, charge gsm, radio, ... • We look for ngo’s that can explain & obtain paper from 10.000 families where they state we can get the use of their roof to put these on AND help with the organistion of the project • Please contact lecturer by CarbonIsMoney.com by CarbonSymphony.org
