Note that, individuals alone may not be able to make drastic emissions cuts that limit climate change to acceptable levels, personal action is essential to raise the importance of issues to policymakers and businesses. Using your voice as a consumer, a customer, a member of the electorate, and an active citizen will lead to changes on a much grander scale. Ultimately, steps to reduce carbon emissions will have a positive impact on other local issues, like improving air quality and public health, creating jobs, and reducing inequality.

What can I do?

  • Join a social movement or campaign that focuses on environmental activities or gets everyone talking about climate change action, such as the Youth Strike 4 Climate or Extinction Rebellion
  • Avoiding meat and dairy products is one of the biggest ways to reduce your environmental impact on the planet. Studies suggest that a high-fiber plant-based diet is also better for your health - so it can be a win-win. Eat fewer or smaller portions of meat, especially red meat, which has the largest environmental impact, and reduce dairy products or switch them to non-dairy alternatives.
  • Leave the car at home
  • Reduce your energy use and bills.
  • Respect and protect green spaces
  • Cut consumption and waste
  • Cut back on flying and many more

There are other things to do to help climate change and I hope everyone plays their roles effectively.

Before we talk about what to do, we should first know what the problem is. Being aware of the causes will definitely make us more conscious on the things that we do that might hurt the planet. I strongly encourage you to watch this video for more information on climate change.

There are a lot of simple ways you can do on your own to help the environment. Some people don’t even try to sacrifice small things because they think it’s too much of a hassle or they think it’s a little too late to be doing such a thing. Changing our lifestyle may not be easy but at least taking one small step, one small sacrifice in your life can have a good impact on the environment and may also inspire others to do the same. Our friends from NRDC made a list of the things you can do to help our planet, check it out here. Let us all be a part of the solution.
