Unit 2: What can I do?

Climate actions to change our world
Our planet is heating up. Glaciers are melting, sea levels are rising, and extreme weather events like droughts, cyclones and floods are becoming more common. All of these events have two things in common: 1. they have the worst effect on the world’s poorest people, many of whom work as farmers, and make it harder for them to grow food; and 2. they threaten the global goal to end hunger by 2030. The good news is that we can help. We need to waste less food, save our forests, consume less energy or use energy sources that cause less pollution, and protect the earth’s precious natural resources like water and land, among other things. What can YOU do about it? You can tackle climate change by changing your daily habits and making simple decisions. We challenge you to pick four of the actions and stick to them. 

Tell your friends and family about the actions you have chosen to combat climate change, and ask them to choose some of their own! Click here to download and print our activities.
