Last week we hiked with René Estermann, CEO from the non profit organisation myclimate to the mountain hut Monte Rosa in the heart of the "Swiss Himalaya". In our eyes René is not only CEO of a organisation that is fighting the problems of climate change, he is a real pioneer when it comes to moving our society to a more sustainable model!

S T E P S: THE RIDE GREENER FILM

Das Ride Greener Dokumentarfilmprojekt ist der erste klimafreundliche Snowboard- und Skifilm der anderen Art: Er taucht in die Welt von verschiedenen Menschen ein, die durch ihre tiefen Beziehungen zu den Bergen miteinander verbunden sind. Sie alle fühlen sich vom voranschreitenden Klimawandel bedroht und sind deshalb auf der Suche nach einem alternativen Weg. Sie wollen ihrer Leidenschaft im Einklang mit der Natur nachgehen und auf ökologisch nachhaltige Weise die Bergwelt erleben. Anstatt dem Schnee weltweit hinterher zu fliegen erkunden sie die Alpen vor ihrer Haustüre, reisen mit dem öffentlichen Verkehr und besteigen die höchsten und eindrucksvollsten Gipfel mit ihrer eigenen Manpower, bevor sie spektakuläre Abfahrten und Sprünge in Angriff nehmen. Ihre Gedanken zu den Auswirkungen des Klimawandels, der Faszination und Freiheit beim Snowboarden und Skifahren und ihre Denkanstösse lassen die Zuschauer das eigene Handeln rund um den Wintersport und das tägliche Leben hinterfragen.
