This recent quote from the former EU Climate Commissioner, Connie Hedegaard, inspires action!
It is the European public who makes it almost untenable for a leader to ignore climate change. Environmental organisations have done a fine job keeping the issue on the agenda.
In 2005, a group of us decided we needed to bring people together, invite them to make specific pledges to reduce energy with aim to reduce carbon emissions (with suggestions from our Pledge Booklet) – and, within a year, personally follow them up, by email or telephone, so that each person’s actions would be recognized, acknowledged, and recorded, for the encouragement of all.
In 2006, we launched Marlborough Climate Pledge, with former Environment Minister Michael Meacher, MP, addressing a packed Town Hall on this subject, inspiring a wave of action which resulted in a savings of 1.2 tonnes of CO2 per pledger (calculated with the help of EST, the Energy Savings Trust) – 5% of average household emissions.
We continued to gather and record pledges for several years, supported by a varied programme of events and projects to educate each other and facilitate our efforts, working with groups and organizations as well as individuals: films, talks, workshops, school events, advocacy & campaigning, establishing a Community Allotment, regular Green Drinks.
