10:10 Campaign

The campaign to cut our (individuals, businesses, schools, organisations etc) carbon footprint by 10% within a year.

Global leaders have only three months to get their act together and sign a strong Climate Treaty in Copenhagen.

Moderate plans of 30% cut in emissions by 2020 will only give us a 50/50 chance of stopping runaway climate change.

What can we do...? Sign up to cut your emissions by 10% by 2010 (that's next year!).

"The 10:10 campaign, which is launched today [1st Sept 2009] in partnership with the Guardian, is designed both to answer the call for immediate action, and to offer individuals and organisations a meaningful way of taking it. It is the brainchild of Franny Armstrong, the irrepressible film-maker behind The Age of Stupid, a powerful docudrama about our failure to tackle climate change. The idea is compellingly simple: by signing up, individuals and organisations from multinational companies to schools and hospitals commit to doing their best to cut their emissions by 10% by the end of 2010, precisely the sort of deep, quick cut the scientists say is needed."
