When you start thinking about the environment, the global climate change debate, carbon emission reduction, waste and energy management you canít stop. When you start researching these issues, you bump into people who are doing the same. When you absorb the information, what feels odd is that people are not jumping up and down enough. Perhaps like me you are finding it difficult to sit still, and maybe you are thinking about what you can do.

The idea behind Footprint Friends was evolved after watching An Inconvenient Truth; a shocking movie that got me thinking and wanting to understand more.

Footprint Friends was launched to raise awareness about environmental issues amongst 10-18 year olds and to promote climate change communication. Through the site we hope members will ask questions, change attitudes, and have a voice about the future facing them as adults.
