Joachim Majholm
Founder
Blue Lines

A former media executive and serial entrepreneur. Joachim worked as a communications consultant in 2022 for a group of contrail mitigation engineers and was utterly amazed to learn about the immense climate opportunity that contrail mitigation is. He was also surprised how few people had ever heard about contrails’ climate impact. So, in the spring of 2023, he created Blue Lines – a non-profit dedicated to contrails education and communication – with the goal of implementing contrails management and thereby cooling down the planet as soon as possible.
