Climate Action

If you haven't heard of climate change already, where have you been?! Taking action against global warming is rapidly becoming one of the most talked about campaign topics.


As the activities of the human population have developed, the average temperature of the planet has risen due to increased carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. This has contributed greatly to the ‘Greenhouse Effect’—where the Earth naturally retains some of the Sun’s energy.  It is believed by specialist scientists that as well as retaining energy from the Sun, our atmosphere is now trapping other harmful gases released by industrial processes and agriculture, causing the average temperature on our planet to rise more rapidly.


What can YOU do to help?

Use public transport more!

Or walk, or ride a bike to reduce the amount of CO2 emissions from vehicle usage.

Plant trees, or join a local tree planting mission

Trees recycle CO2 into oxygen for us to breathe, and where we currently lose trees to deforestation and natural disasters, the problem is magnified. You could also use Ecosia as your default search engine—Ecosia plants trees for every search made!

Review your diet!

Can you include more meat-free meals? Methane gas from livestock is a harmful contributor to global warming.

Buy local!

By purchasing local produce you will avoid unnecessary packaging as much as possible and help to support your local farmers and businesses.

Reduce, Reuse and Recycle

Check out your local recycling rules and utilise organisations such as Terracycle who provide recycling for items you cant at home… your school or company could even become a collection point. Our Solution page on Waste will give you more advice!

Save energy!

Turn off plugs, lights and electricals, only boil as much water in the kettle you need and turn the thermostat down/up slightly.

Calculate your own carbon footprint

Young People in Action!

It is difficult not to know about ‘Fridays For Future’ founded by Greta Thunberg. Known also as School Strike for the Climate, this is now an international movement of students who take time off school on Fridays to demonstrate for action on climate change. The movement was started by Greta in 2018 when she sat alone outside the Swedish Parliament in Stockholm. She has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize and is infamous for taking on many world leaders including Donald Trump.
