## CO2_Free! |

Everybody knows that we cannot stick to "business a usual" for much longer. In order to change something, we want to get | Auf Deutsch |

How? Simple: if you are currently using e.g. a car to get to
University, then instead you simply take a bike instead. And if you
generate some CO2 anyway (for example, if on rainy days you are going to
take a car anyway), then we will all chip together at the end of the
month, and compensate the generated CO2 with bought compensation methods
(e.g. https://www.climateaustria.at/co2-kompensation.html).

We will do this in May. All you have to do: Participate - and at the
end of the month you tell us an email i) how much CO2 your trips to work
generate in a normal month, and ii) how much you generated in May. We will
then contact you, in order to compensate together the remaining
CO2-output.

Please use the template below for the email. And to calculate your
CO2-emissions, simply use the CO2-Calculator below. For example, if you

- live 15 km away from university,
- normally get to university 20x/month with a motorbike
- and for "CO2-Free" used a bicycle on 10 days, and on 5 days took a car, and
- if we can contact you at
`max.mustermann@gmail.com`

Normally: 2 [there & back] * 15 [km] * 20 [days] * 72 [motorbike] =
43200 g

For CO2-Free: 2 [there & back] * 15 [km] * 5 [days] * 104 [car] =
15600 g

in an empty email. enter the values that you have calculated, and send it with the "Subject: CO2-Free" to climate@thaslwanter.at.

Every participant is valuable!Typical CO2-emission have been taken from European
Environment Agency, and the average emissions for bus-km were
reduced to * 50g/km *, since in Linz the average number of
passengers on a bus is typically larger than 12.
