UN Climate Change News, 15 October 2018 - UN Climate Change has launched a new campaign to encourage all types of climate action, no matter how big or small, on the part of citizens around the world.
When taking the quiz, people can find out what sort of attitude they have with regard to climate change – ranging from “living for the moment” to being a “climate hero”.
Having taken the quiz and having measured their carbon footprint, users can then take steps to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. To become fully climate neutral, they can choose to make use of the UN’s Voluntary Cancellation platform.
The three-step approach of measuring, reducing and offsetting unavoidable greenhouse gas emissions is part of the UN’s Climate Neutral Now initiative.
Climate Neutral Now supports the central goal of the Paris Climate Change Agreement, which is to keep the global average temperature rise well below 2 degrees Celsius and as close as possible to 1.5 degrees Celsius.
This goal can only reached by the world reaching climate neutrality by 2050, as confirmed by a new report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
Have fun, and do your bit for the climate!
