Personal Action Ideas
While actions by government, industry, and other large emitters will have the most impacts in reducing greenhouse gas emissions, personal and household actions are also very important. These actions signal to leaders and the market that we are ready to adopt and advocate for a low-carbon lifestyle and will favour political leaders and products in the economy that align with our priorities.
Personal and household actions vary in terms of their impact on greenhouse gas emissions. We provide a list of ideas below starting with those that have the highest impact:
This is a critical decade for climate action and while we need to take swift and bold actions now to maintain global temperatures to 1.5℃, we must do so in a way that addresses inequalities, reinforces human rights and builds resilience in communities. We can all play a part in achieving climate justice – by working for reconciliation, rebuilding our own relationship with the earth, standing in solidarity with marginalized communities, amplifying the voices of youth, and much more.
We encourage you to explore some of the options below for promoting climate justice and decolonization, and honouring Indigenous rights. While taking any one of these actions will be a positive step, we encourage you to consider multiple actions. Reconciliation is a lifelong journey of learning and unlearning which cannot be achieved by a singular action.
Thank you for taking action For the Love of Creation!
Please write to our elected representatives and encourage them to do the same.
