Just attended this seminar-writeshop on Climate Change and Global Warming, and heard about the Low-Carbon Diet being pushed by Klima of the Manila Observatory (Actually, it was years back when I first heard about it, from a colleague, Sandy, who used to work with us, via the IACCC Secretariat.
Anyway, just to spread the campaign, here are a couple of posters they’ve released to encourage people to do their share in the fight against global warming.
And then here are excerpts from the klima website.
“The Low Carbon Diet is a behavioral-change campaign that encourages you to reduce your CARBON dioxide emissions on a personal level by 10 kgs everyday. You can do your share by using less energy, conserving water, carpooling, reducing waste and recycling. And no matter how simple your act is, you form part of the global effort to protect our climate.
You can get on it in your school, at the office, in your home, in your car, and with the public transport — practically anywhere at any given time.
Truly, reducing our CARBON dioxide emissions has never been this PERSONAL.
Let’s be on the Low Carbon Diet for a Healthy Climate.
The Low Carbon Diet campaign was made possible through the support provided by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Manila Observatory through the DEVCAP Project. The opinions expressed herein are those of KLIMA and do not necessarily reflect the views of the USAID.”
Maybe it’s high time to revive the campaign, especially now that the climate change issue is heating up.
The young crowd would learn a lot from this type of campaign.
