Tips and tools to fix climate change

 

We can’t ignore climate change. It’s real and is causing serious changes to our planet, including rising sea levels, extreme weather events, and deforestation. It’s wreaking havoc on our wildlife and habitats, while putting more and more people's lives and homes at risk across the globe.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) are a conservative organisation and they’ve predicted we have 12 years to fix climate change, with urgent and unprecedented action, or we will have societal collapse.

Just 12 years.

During this critical time, we’re sharing information about climate change threats, impacts and solutions based on the scientific facts. Read this round-up for an overview of the indicators of climate change and the Environment Agency’s recent report provides comprehensive coverage on the impacts and adaptation measures

You can also access lots more articles and information in our What We Love blog.

1) Switch to Renewable Energy

2) Switch to a Circular Economy

This month’s tools and tips is focused on how we can address the climate emergency by implementing sustainable actions individually and within our workplaces and communities.
