Tick tock, tick tock – the climate clock is ticking. According to climate experts, we have seven years to turn the tide and still set course for the 1.5 degree target. Seven years is not a lot of time, especially considering the slow progress at the political level. Unfortunately, it seems the far-reaching and urgently needed transformation is not in sight. Nevertheless, or precisely because of this: We should not give up the belief in a sustainable world!
Every day, new, innovative ideas emerge around the globe. Every day, people set out to tackle local and global challenges with their projects, ventures and energy. And it is precisely these people and their ideas that we give a platform at RESET.

Our Goal: A Fair and Green Digitalisation
Consistently implementing the energy transition, rethinking food and mobility, making digitalisation sustainable – we have a lot to do in the next few years. But, there is still a chance for a positive turnaround in the climate crisis, and there are many ways to get there.
With RESET, we are looking for ways towards a better tomorrow. We report on ideas and projects that use digitalisation to drive sustainable transformation and explore solutions for fair and green digitalisation. We also bring together actors to work and cooperate together, and use our expertise to support their projects. To ensure that even more people learn about these solutions and develop them further, we also developed ourselves in 2021:
- Relaunch RESET.org: Relaunch RESET.org: Recent visitors to our website may have noticed a new look in the past few days. RESET.org now has a fresh new design, and allows for more innovative navigation and access, including via the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. In addition, our Greenbooks on topics such as civic tech, artificial intelligence, satellites and drones, and blockchain have found their own home.
- New Special Features: In our second Greenbook, with the kind support of the Deutsche Bundesstiftung Umwelt (DBU), we explored how satellites and drones can become valuable tools in environmental and climate protection. In recent months, we have taken a closer look at civic tech and researched how citizens are shaping the future with digital tools. This has resulted in our third Greenbook: Civic Tech – Ways Out of the Climate Crisis with Digital civic engagement.
- RESET Radio: We have a new podcast to add to your playlist! RESET Radio reports on topics at the interface of sustainability and digitalisation. In line with our Greenbooks, we talk about artificial intelligence, satellites in environmental and climate protection and civic tech in the episodes. So put on your headphones and listen in to RESET Radio! (available in German only).
- RESET on the road: And of course, despite Corona, we were on the road with our mission to show the potentials and challenges of digitalisation for sustainable development with keynotes at (digital) conferences and workshops, including the Science Week of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), the University in Salzburg, the Federal Association of the Green Economy, the nachhaltig.digital conference and re:publica.
We also have a lot planned for 2022. We will continue to search for innovative solutions for the most urgent challenges of our time, engage with other actors for sustainable and just digitalisation – and the next Greenbooks are already being planned. We look forward to sharing them with you!
