Climate Leave by Renanne
Jul 19, 2014
I like it, but at the same time you could do a "google thingy" (or so I overheard): instead of some time off maybe consider some spare time for the employee to think about her or his own project, with considering the climate for a change instead of only looking for profit. Maybe some good things/a win win will pop out because of the spare time you give to the employee to wander about the issue. just my 2 cents really.

Looks like an good idea. I will link it to my main proposal:Settle the carbon debt and release the power of example!https://www.climatecolab.org/web/guest/plans/-/plans/contestId/1300210/planId/1308202 Taking climate leave seems like a good way to make a difference by showing example.

Good thought! This should be one step for Private sector to show committment by making their employee spent time like the social committment on climate change. Do complete your proposal. Regards, Vishal
