Cycling 4 Climate

Medal for the Climate Classic 2023

Partner(s): Snijlab

On Monday 19 June 2023, nearly 1,500 sustainable cyclists cycled along the coastline created in the Netherlands if the sea level rises too far. A coastline that as far as Cycling 4 Climate is concerned should never become a reality.

We can’t wait any longer to call attention to the rising sea level and its consequences for the entire Randstad and some 9 million Dutch people, among others. Last century, the sea level already rose by 20 centimetres. This century, another 80 centimetres threatens to be added. We must prevent that at all costs.


Jan Wullink of “Duurzaam Sport” created a completely CO2 neutral medal for all participants in this beautiful event

Through laser engraving, 1500 medals were produced with no negative effect on our environment.
