You can still get involved and measure your carbon footprint, you can use the online Act on CO2 calculator , which provides an action plan to help you to reduce your footprint or download an offline questionnaire.
Now you have measured your footprint, think about how you can reduce it, if you used the Act on CO2 calculator the action plan gives some tips or take a look at our leaflet and action sheet.
Can your story help to inspire others, send your photos and stories to email@example.com like Graham from Poole, below.
Graham from Poole says: “I’m worried about climate change so I've started cycling to work two or three times a week to reduce my carbon footprint, it took a bit of getting used to but its fine now and I feel much fitter.”
The project aims to develop the membership of the Coalition, to raise awareness of climate change amongst local partners and the public, to work with local authorities on carbon footprint, and to develop future funding for work on climate change.
