My Zero Carbon

The best time to act is now!

My Zero Carbon is a non-profit Climate Change action project to enable as many people as possible to take positive actions on climate change via helpful and practical tips and tricks and animated & live image videos.

 

Project proposal (pdf - 24 May 2021)

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 next two years to focus on this project.

I am committed to run this project 1 day a week for one year.

Every further donation of £150 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.
You can read more about project at the interim project page https://brillianto.co.uk/MyZeroCarbon/.
