|About the Challenge To Change|
Why should I take the Challenge?
The threat of dangerous climate change is the key challenge of the 21st century. The global scientific and political consensus is that we need to urgently reduce carbon emissions now if dangerous climate change is to be averted.
Climate change is being driven by human activity that causes the release of greenhouse gases. Most of the greenhouse gas that causes climate change comes from the use of fossil fuels to produce energy.
The energy use of most individuals can be reduced by a surprisingly large amount if the individual chooses to make this a priority. When individuals in leadership positions make this choice their organisations can also achieve large energy savings. These energy savings can result in a significant reduction in greenhouse emissions.
What is involved?
While most people are now aware of climate change, we need more taking action to reduce their carbon pollution. The C2C program encourages people into action, shows them what they can do to make a difference, and then provides immediate feedback to participants on how much carbon pollution they have reduced.
The Challenge To Change is a four stage program consisting of:
How do I participate?
During the Challenge to Change the online software will guide you through the step of:
First setting up and familarising yourself with the system.
Then reading your meter to gain a baseline usage as well as looking into actions you can do to reduce your usage.
Then doing something about it! Acting on your identified ways to reduce usage, and recording your meter readings along the way.
Once you have two sets of information you can see the difference your actions have made. Compare your achievements and the actions that you have taken with others and discuss how you can maintain these actions and do more.
