About this Campaign

In Uganda forest covers are significantly lost every year and wetlands adversely degraded and human settled and use of fossil fuel and old auto motives and poorly controlled automation and urban planning all contributes to carbon emissions. Climate change can be overwhelming. The science is complex, and when it comes to future impacts, there are still a lot of unknowns. While real solutions will require action on a global scale, there are choices you can make in your day-to-day life to lessen your personal impact on the environment. This procedure will walk you through the hint and caution.

A carbon footprint is the total amount of greenhouse gas emissions that come from the production, use and end-of-life of a product or service. It includes carbon dioxide the gas most commonly emitted by humans and others, including methane, nitrous oxide, and fluorinated gases, which trap heat in the atmosphere, causing global warming. Usually, the bulk of an individual’s carbon footprint will come from transportation, housing and food.

You will need to know the following:
-Approximately how many miles you travel by car, bus, train and plane.
-The energy usage in your home.
-How much you spend shopping.
-The composition of your diet.

No matter how you scored, here are some things that could help you lessen your personal environmental impact.

Use of Funds

In addition to changing your day-to-day habits, exercising your rights as a citizen is one of the most significant things you can do to help the planet.

Taking climate change into consideration when you vote is a good start. Here are some other tips we want to address:

a) Making communities know their facts. Understanding the science of climate change will help you talk to your family, friends and local representatives with about the issue with confidence.
b) Encourage communities find local climate action groups or meetups in your area. Attending these meetings will help to keep you abreast of way you can help in your community.
c) Making citizens to speak to your local representative. Suggest things your city or town can do to reduce its carbon footprint, like developing a town action plan, improving recycling, and adopting green energy policies.
d) Advocating for vote on policies that protect the environment. Use your vote to curb climate change.
e) Encouraging use or purchase of electronic bikes, vehicle or or ordinary bicycles to de-congest the cities.
f) Creating zero carbon platforms and training members to spread the news and dangers within their communities
g) Reforestation and other conservation methods to reduce uncontrolled energy usage
