Climate Action Wendover – Mission to Zero
A landmark scientific study released by the United Nations in August 2021 declared that human activity is changing the climate in unprecedented ways. The report warned of increasing wildfires and flooding, continued glacial melting and rising sea levels all of which should be seen as a code red for humanity. However, scientists are saying that a catastrophe can be avoided but only if the world acts fast to rapidly cut greenhouse gas emissions and stabilise rising temperatures.
The message is clear, now is the time for action and with that in mind, Climate Action Wendover would like to thank everyone who came to our September event during the Great Big Green Week to learn about our local projects aimed at reducing Wendover’s Carbon Footprint.
If you would like to support our mission to zero, then here are 4 things you could do:
