The choices we all make every day will determine how severe the climate crisis becomes. While climate scientists made it clear in the major 2018 IPCC report that systemic change is needed to avoid catastrophic climate disruption, they also highlighted that there are many actions individuals can take now.
A good starting point is to calculate your carbon footprint. This will help show you where you have the most opportunity to cut emissions. You can then find out more about the changes we can all make to the way we travel, the energy we use, the food we eat, and the things we use and throw away.
Gosport Borough Council, Hampshire County Council and the UK Government are all offering support to help us all reduce our climate impact.
We're looking for inspirational stories to share here of people taking action now to tackle climate change. If you think that could be you then please let us know. We'd love to hear how Gosport residents are making a difference, whether that's in your home life, at work, or in the wider community.
