MyZeroCcrbon-a Climate Change communication project encouraging Climate Action
My Zero Carbon is a not-for-profit Climate Change communication project to enable as many people as possible to take positive actions on climate change. The project uses social media and videos to give helpful and practical tips and tricks as well as encouraging and constructive information about climate change
I have been aware of the Climate Change issue since the late 1980s. I also started personal action to reduce the impact of my behaviour on the environment at that time. As a committed Christian, for me, Climate Change is a matter of priority concern for ‘Creation Care’. I want to unite with people of all backgrounds, creeds, motivations and nations to tackle this challenge.
Like many other people, I have already reduced my carbon footprint In my case, I reduced it by two-thirds from approx. 7.5 t to 2.5 t. I would like to share practical tips and tricks with as many other people as possible on how to do the first two-thirds of your personal carbon reduction. I would then like to take you on a journey to tackle the last third towards zero carbon. By sharing my efforts publicly, I can give hope and encourage many people. At the same time, I can contribute to a lot more carbon emission reductions than if I just work on reducing my own carbon footprint.
I gave up a substantial proportion of my income as a freelance environmental consultant in the last 12 months to focus on this project. 2021/22 Project report - a lot of progress and achievements in the first year of the project https://myzerocarbon.org/Blog/Annual-Report-2021-22/#wbb1
I am committed to giving another 150 hours in 2022/23. To make the project sustainable in the long term, I am looking to raise £13,000 from funders/ sponsors.
Every further donation of £180 will extend the project by one week.
Your personal donation can provide the match-funding that will unlock more funding from organisations. You can read more about project on the website https://myzerocarbon.org.
