What Can Individuals Do?
Reducing global warming and confronting climate change is a shared responsibility. We all must take action as per our personal circumstances and capacities.
Trying 1.5°C Lifestyles is not as difficult as you may think. The first step is familiarizing yourself with different low-carbon lifestyle options, followed by trying out those that are possible for you. It is quite normal if you cannot do it perfectly, and it may not be your fault. Please don't blame yourself, and instead tell us about your experience, sharing it with others to help learn about change.
