Taking practical steps

The European Climate Pact has been set up to inform, inspire and foster cooperation on climate issues between people and organisations across the EU.

Count Us In have partnered with the Climate Pact to help Europeans take a step to reduce their own carbon footprint – from talking to friends, walking and cycling more, reducing food waste, to insulating a home to save energy.

Individuals and communities will be able to track how much carbon they’ve saved, come together with their friends or colleagues to reach carbon saving targets, and challenge others to get involved.
