Climate Action North is launching a series of online and face-to-face roadshow style events designed to empower everyone to make simple, small changes to halt the climate crisis.
“One Small Change” is designed to support, educate, and inspire everyone to make one small change to their lifestyle to help the planet and ensure the environment is safe for future generations.
Julie Harrison, STEM and Education Director at Climate Action North and project lead for the One Small Change initiative said: “We desperately need to encourage, empower and help people to take practical and simple actions in their gardens, homes and lifestyle and make the tangible changes needed to halt the climate crisis.
“We hear people ask what they can do and that they feel helpless they would have to make drastic changes. Many people making one small change can make a huge difference. One Small Change provides accessible, practical, and fun solutions and alternative ways of doing things. This can be as simple as switching to reusable cups, bottles and shopping bags, learning how to rewild their garden, to driving less, walking more or even introducing solar panels, heat pumps, and other sustainable ways of heating their homes as well as saving energy and reducing consumption.”
One Small Change events take place online and will also be held in venues across the North of England as roadshows over the course of the next 12 months.
Climate Action North’s Managing Director, Sharon Lashley, said: “After the UN issued a ‘code red for humanity’ people are asking what they can actually do about the climate crisis. The good news is there is still time to act; our One Small Change initiative is designed to help individuals take action swiftly and easily while helping them to learn why there is a need to tackle climate change to ensure our environment is safeguarded.”
