How can each of us improve the world? 5 + 1 New Year’s resolutions with a big impact
23. 12. 2022

The New Year brings many opportunities for positive change. You can start doing things you’ve been putting off for a long time and benefit your environment and karma at the same time. And you don’t have to bare your soul to do it. We’ve got five tips for resolutions that can make a big impact with a little effort, and maybe make the world a little better. How about starting to Bike to work?

Donate regularly

Once a month, tidy up your home and donate unwanted items to people in need. Whether it’s clothes your kids have outgrown or inappropriate gifts. There are plenty of places and ways to make sure they get to where they can still be of use to someone else. And it will keep your home airy.

Mentor the youngsters

Believe it or not, we all have something we can pass on to the younger generation. If you want to benefit your neighborhood, give your time to children. For example, you could go to a children’s home or reach out to a non-profit that will connect you with someone whose future you can positively impact. After all, such a relationship can make a big difference in your life, too.

The time you give to your children is an investment in a better future for all of us

Support an NGO

Choose an organization close to your heart and make a regular donation. Whether you care about human rights or the climate, there are plenty of non-profit organizations to choose from that are making the world a better place. Set up a standing order and support their efforts on an ongoing basis. If you decide to help AutoMat (the association that has coordinated the Bike to Work Challenge since 2011) improve public spaces and promote conditions for sustainable transport, we would of course be very grateful.

Become a volunteer

Start the new year actively and volunteer not only for Christmas. Your help will be useful all year round. There is no limit to your inventiveness, choose what suits you best. Offer your help to a charity, or animal shelter, or join the health clowns.

Blood donation saves lives

Donate blood

One of the easiest ways to make a positive difference in someone’s life is to donate blood. One visit to the hospital can save up to three lives a year! It’s similar to plasma. Find a half day and expand the ranks of active donors.

Bonus tip

Non-motorized transportation, one of our most important agendas, is good for you and your city. And you don’t have to wait for the May Bike to Work Challenge to bring it. In January, you can see for yourself that self-propulsion is possible even in the winter by taking our January Challenge and giving it a try on a bike, foot, trot, or scooter for at least one week. You’ll see that you like it.
