Step in to Double Nature and become an Ambassador
We are grateful to be an independent foundation being able to continuously act on the needed systemic interventions for doubling nature, re-storing carbon and making the transition towards the regenerative economy. An economy which is regenerative instead of extractive.
Ambassadors support the network and ecosystem on our collective journey towards a regenerative economy and are offered several networking opportunities and other benefits.
- Free entrance to double nature summits
Ambassadors get free entrance to double nature summits. The Summit brings together pioneers and innovators within the regenerative society, to connect the dots and collectively shape the new nature economy that restores 1500 gigaton by doubling nature.
- Double nature lunch meetings
We organize several events & meetings. Such as our lunch meetings with initiatives and organizations focusing on the regenerative economy. Ambassadors get access to the online streaming or can enroll themselves to the available seats in our office at the Tolhuistuin in Amsterdam, being able to join the lunch for a small fee.
- Innovator stage
Our innovator stage focuses on giving the stage to carbon removers; entrepreneurs who re-store carbon with nature. These online sessions are available to the entire network and give in-depth insight in the activities from the removers in the Double Nature Network.
- Visits to innovator sites
We run different systemic interventions at the time, from testing nature based fertilizers to entire carbon accounting systems. We organise yearly site visits, which is always inspiring. Plus, help is always welcome. This can be from helping with hands-on activities in our lab to writing websites. Whenever possible, you as an Ambassador are welcome to support our way towards the regenerative economy.
- Irregular newsletters
In our newsletter we keep you updated on our Ambassadors and their activities as well as for updates on our systemic interventions and help we need from the network.

Root Ambassadorship gives you access to all the benefits listed above plus re-storing (offsetting) your residual monthly carbon emissions of 0,6 ton per month (based on 7,2 ton CO2 / year on average for a person in Western Europe) directly from one of the carbon removal entrepreneurs in the Climate Cleanup network. The Root Ambassadorship is 90€ per month.
Option 3. Lifetime Ambassador
The Life Ambassadorship gives you access to all above points, your monthly carbon removal at the price of 90€ per month, plus the one-off cost of your entire lifetime carbon removal since the day you were born. For the Lifetime tier, please select the 90€ per month option below and we will contact you on the Lifetime options.
Climate Cleanup Foundation is a Public Benefit Organisation (ANBI) so your Ambassadors fee is tax deductible if you support for five years or more. Yearly or five-yearly payment is possible.
Dutch Ambassadors can maximise their donation by becoming an Ambassador for a minimum of five years. Applicable tax regulations can be found here.
In case the fee is a problem for you, please reach out to us with a brief motivation why you want to join and we will get back to you. Also, if you want to enable someone who can not afford a membership, please consider a Gold Membership. A membership provides for free or reduced prices at (network) events, for example The Double Nature Summit in May 2023.

Of course we would love to communicate with you as an Ambassador. By joining you give us permission to be visible on our Ambassadors page, and to contact you. If you don’t want this, we kindly request you to inform us here or through explicit comment in the message box above.
Ambassadors are by default listed on the People page: https://climatecleanup.org/people using a social media profile photo. If you want a different photo or do not want to be listed at all, please let us know.
An entrepreneurial spirit is central to our approach. While the sector of natural climate solutions is still in its infancy, we hope and expect it to grow swiftly. Before 2030 we want to reduce the membership fees towards zero and run our Foundation’s operations based on returns on investments in the new nature economy.
