Act Now – The UN campaign for Individual action – Ireland 2021.

The UN Campaign for Individual Action

COVID-19 has upended our lives. The way we work, the way we interact, the way we move about. This can be a turning point. Let’s seize the moment, and change course — toward more sustainable lifestyles.

ActNow is the United Nations campaign for individual action on climate change and sustainability.
Every one of us can help limit global warming and take care of our planet. By changing our habits and making choices that have less harmful effects on the environment, we have the power to confront the climate challenge and build a more sustainable world.

An estimated 931 million tonnes of food – it is about 17% of all food available , or the equivalent of about 23 million fully loaded 40-tonne trucks – went into trash bins in 2019, while 690 million people around the world go hungry. Let’s stop the waste. When you throw food away, you’re also wasting the energy that was used in growing, producing, packaging and transporting it, causing CO2 emissions. Only buy what you need, and use what you have.
