How can you help reduce the impacts of climate change?
· Three social ways
1. Use green transport
    Most cars run on petrol or diesel, which creates CO2 and contributes to climate change. Next time you go on a short journey, can you walk, cycle or scoot instead?
    For longer journeys, think about taking a bus or train which are better for the environment than cars.

- Get into good habits and turn off lights and electronics when you’re not using them. Your family could even get a smart meter to keep track of how much energy you use and help you save more.
- Recycle things so they can be turned into something new.
- Learn how to fix broken things instead of throwing them away.
- Find recipes to turn your family’s leftovers into yummy meals, and compost any food scraps.

3. Spread the word
One of the biggest things you can do is to encourage others to join you in making positive changes. Talk to your family about the things you can do at home together, such as the ideas above. Join your school's eco council, and speak at an assembly or film a video to inspire your fellow pupils.

1. Plant trees
Did you know trees have superpowers? They naturally absorb CO2, storing it in their trunks, roots and leaves, so they’re a brilliant way to fight climate change. They have loads of other benefits too. They give us oxygen to breathe, reduce flooding, provide homes for wildlife, and help make us healthier and happier. When you plant trees, you’re doing something amazing for everyone!
