How to Mobilise Public Support to Stop Global Warming
At the G7 Meeting in Cornwall UK in June 2021 World Leaders committed to “keep the 1.5°C global warming threshold within reach.” This could open a path to a global commitment to 1.5C Max at COP26 in November 2021.
But G7 and G20 Leaders will not be able to take the action necessary to limit global warming to 1.5C unless there is public support from people and businesses.
So what can be done to secure public support?
Communication from Government informing us - people, businesses and organisations - about what we can do to help.
Communication from NGOs, such as Saving Our Planet, encouraging changes in individual behaviour and decision-making to reduce our CO2 footprint.
Supporting, participating and funding education, information and communication around carbon budget and stopping global warming
Building on increasingly positive data about climate awareness, for example, the recent UK Government Survey showing that “72% of people are willing to change their lifestyle to some extent to meet net zero”
This UK Government Survey in Autumn 2020 showed:
✅ “83% of respondents agreed that climate change is a concern” ✅ “When given information on the meaning of net-zero, 78% of people strongly or somewhat supported the UK’s target” ✅ “Three-quarters of respondents believe our health and wellbeing would be better in a net-zero society” ✅ “72% of people are willing to change their lifestyle to some extent to meet net zero”
