Climate change is a global issue that will have an impact on everybody’s life.
We may not be able to completely stop the changes to our climate that are already occurring, but we can take action to reduce the extent of the current and future impact of climate change by preparing our communities to deal with its consequences.
We can take individual and collective action to reduce the amount of energy we use and the amount of carbon dioxide we are responsible for releasing.
We can take action to reduce the chances of our communities being affected by shortages of food and water, and the spread of diseases.
Some actions have a number of benefits: for example, creating school gardens can help tackle greenhouse gas levels, since vegetables grown there can be used in place of produce driven or flown in from far away. It can also increase food security for the community.
