I have been aware of the Climate Change issue since the late 1980s. I also started personal action to reduce the impact of my behaviour on the environment at that time. As a committed Christian, for me, Climate Change is a matter of priority concern for ‘Creation Care’. I want to unite with people of all backgrounds, creeds, motivations and nations to tackle this challenge.

Like many other people, I have already reduced my carbon footprint In my case, I reduced it by two-thirds from approx. 7.5 t to 2.5 t. I would like to share practical tips and tricks with as many other people as possible on how to do the first two-thirds of your personal carbon reduction. I would then like to take you on a journey to tackle the last third towards zero carbon. By sharing my efforts publicly, I can give hope and encourage many people. At the same time, I can contribute to a lot more carbon emission reductions than if I just work on reducing my own carbon footprint.

I am willing to give up a substantial proportion of my income as a freelance environmental consultant over the period 2021-2023 to focus on this project.

I have already contributed over 570 hours (about 1.5 days/week) in 2021/22 pro bono to launch the project and started delivering social media and video content.

I am committed to contributing a further 150 hours for free and a further 350 hours at half my usual consultancy rate in 2022/23.

Every donation of £180 will extend the project by one week. I am also seeking donations from major grant givers and from business sponsors and companies providing goods or services to reduce your carbon footprint.

Your personal donation can provide the match-funding that will unlock more funding from organisations.
