This video clip comes from Cowandilla Primary School, in Adelaide, South Australia, Australia. This school is called a “Climate change focus school”, and has a focus teaching children about climate change and then to take action by reducing their ecological footprint and living sustainably. The children gain confidence, skills and knowledge and pass these onto their parents and younger children. What a great role model of a school!
The INFOGRAPHIC here shows ways of saving energy in our homes. This helps us to live sustainably by reducing our carbon footprint. It also benefits us by saving us money, and improving our enjoyment and lifestyle at home. It models for our children the way towards sustainable living.
Ready to reach out beyond our individual effort to reduce our carbon footprint to help heal our planet’s climate crisis? Let’s get our local communities (schools, universities, workplaces, businesses, towns or cities) excited about becoming committed to changing to 100% renewable clean energy use. Climate Reality’s 100% COMMITTED campaign will provide clear and ongoing support on how to achieve this goal. Together with communities across the globe, we can help to stop and reverse climate change, and create a healthy planet for future generations, giving us a deep sense of satisfaction, connection and purpose.
When we care about the global environmental crisis and want to be part of the healing process, the first thing we can do is make changes in our own lives – to live sustainably, in ways which reduce our carbon footprint. 1Million Women’s CARBON CHALLENGE shows us how we can do this effectively, simply and enjoyably.
The INFOGRAPHIC here shows some ways we can save energy in our bathroom and laundry, which equates to saving money on our energy bills. When we take these steps we are also helping to heal our planet by reducing our carbon footprint and living sustainably.
As this INFOGRAPHIC here shows, there are simple steps we can take to save energy in our kitchens. These save us money in our energy bills and increase our joy and satisfaction of being in a well planned, efficient kitchen. They also help our planet by reducing our carbon footprints.
As this INFOGRAPHIC here shows, we can prioritize sustainable forms of travel for our daily commutes and occasional longer travels, and gain benefits and satisfaction along the way. Transportation is responsible for 27% of greenhouse gases emitted in the US, so we will be helping to reduce that and our individual carbon footprint.
Teaching children to love and care for the environment starts from young. As the INFOGRAPHIC here shows, there are many ways for adults and children to share outdoor nature experiences. These create enjoyable bonding opportunities and memorable experiences.
