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.
A central element of the #Climattitude campaign is a fun quiz , which allows users to discover their own personal climate footprint making use of the UN carbon footprint calculator.
Having taken the quiz and having measured their carbon footprint, users can then take steps to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions.
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.
