MAKE A CHANGE

Our top 10 tips you can use.

With so many experts on climate change, what can YOU do about it? And how does this fit into the bigger picture?

Here is our initial list of the most achievable things you can do to make a difference.

RUTLAND YOUTH

Our youth and our future.

Young people across Rutland are working with their friends, schools, and communities to help tackle the climate crisis. Below are the some of the most recent examples of climate action from our young people, and some inspiration for taking actions yourself. Do you know of any young people who deserve a mention on this page? Please do let us know if so!

RUTLAND VILLAGES

Our inspired community.
The towns and villages across Rutland are home to some great communities, many of which are doing their bit to promote biodiversity, reduce waste and tackle climate change. On these pages, you can find out what your community has been up to, whether they have any upcoming events, and how to get involved.
Please do let us know if there’s something in your community that you’d like to see listed!

WASTE ADVICE

Real action, right now.

Waste is a major contributor to greenhouse gases. It takes land, water and labour to produce the goods and food that go to landfill – where they produce more emissions as they break down. Estimates suggest that we waste around £19 billion of food every year in the UK.

BIODIVERSITY

Our global environment.

In the past 50 years, 60% of UK species have declined. See what we are doing about it in Rutland

Rutland's Climate Mission

Together we take action to redress the balance in our natural world whether by reducing our carbon footprint, improving biodiversity, applying high ethical standards to what we consume or by cutting down on our waste.  We do so for the immediate well–being of our communities and for those to come.
