Summary

Climate Action Now addresses the issue of climate change, by facilitating reduction in personal carbon footprint and increasing general awareness of climate change among the public, to provide a better future for everyone. This project is planting trees with a goal to 300,000 trees to offset carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions of more than 170 UK residents for 20 years. This project is also planting the seeds for future cultural change by educating 1,000 climate change teachers and 1,000 children.

Challenge

The Earth risks becoming largely uninhabitable because of irreversible effects of climate change; to the extent of driving certain species to extinction. Key problems faced in combating climate change are: 1) The lack of awareness of the problem amongst the general public. 2) Behaviours and consumption patterns that incrementally add to the already worsening state of the eco-system. 3) Inadequate opportunities to positively contribute or create impact towards climate change.

Solution

1) Raising awareness: Creating a cultural shift, by educating the population on the gravity of the situation, and how to address it individually. 2) Facilitating action: Providing a platform for individuals to have immediate influence on reforestation and tree plantation. 3) Fostering a responsible future generation: The book -"Let's Save Our Planet", will educate children on the effects of climate change and inspire future generations to behave and act responsibly to preserve the planet.

Long-Term Impact

This project will: 1) Plant 300,000 trees across continents; delivering immediate results by absorbing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. 2) Deliver 20 seminars across UK and Europe to train 1000 teachers on climate awareness to further spread the knowledge and to act as catalysts for change. 3) Provide educational books to 1,000 children who can in turn act as agents for further change.
