The study, “Climate Change 2023: Synthesis Report”, released on Monday following a week-long IPCC session in Interlaken, brings into sharp focus the losses and damages experienced now, and expected to continue into the future, which are hitting the most vulnerable people and ecosystems especially hard. A liveable future for all is possible, if we take urgent climate action: flagship UN report | UN News
CLIMATE CHANGE ACTION
‘Climate Change’ is an emphatic truth: the signs are all around us. For us Rutlanders, the signs are not perhaps as dramatic as melting polar ice caps or vast tracts of land becoming uninhabitable as temperatures soar but nonetheless there are tell – tale signs: reduced insect population, fewer bats, swifts and hedgehogs in our villages and more ‘unusual’ weather patterns.
CLIMATE CHANGE TREE ACTION
Climate Change Trust (Rutland) will be running, The Rutland Tree Planting Project. Our commercial partners and The Woodland Trust will sponsor trees to be planted in schools around Rutland to support biodiversity, enhance Rutland natural landscape and offset the sponsor’s carbon emissions.
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!
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.
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.
