Climate change is the challenge of our time. While policymakers, corporations and other institutions of power have a responsibility to act, solving climate change will require society as a whole to come together. We, the citizens, can be part of that solution, and drive the change towards a clean, sustainable future.
Welcome to the project site of Climate Campaigners. Uniting science institutes, cities and municipalities, civil society organizations and digital entrepreneurs, we provide a global climate action tool, integrating social science research insights and policy support with grassroots action.
On this site, you will be able to read more about our project and its campaign, access our reports and publications, and get to know the partners and cities that co-create this project.
Making sustainable lifestyles is not only the easiest option for citizens to choose, but also the default or 'norm' for societies in bringing human activity back within planetary boundaries.
The objective of this Policy Brief is to inform policy- makers at all levels on issues related to climate-friendly lifestyle changes, and to encourage them to concentrate efforts and financial resources on a number of priority sectors.
This report summarises the findings of an interdisciplinary assessment of state-of-the-art pro-climate behavioural change research for the Climate Campaigners project.
In this project, citizens will be empowered to be Climate Campaigners themselves - supported by our Lighthouse Cities. Read more about them here.
One of the key challenges for the world in dealing with climate change is how to achieve truly sustainable mobility. In the EU alone, the sector represents 27% of the total emissions, and steadily growing. Read more about mobility in Climate Campaigners here.
It's time to reimagine how we design, construct and renovate buildings. Whether it's on an industrial and societal scale, or the kind of unit we have the most personal power over - our homes. Read more about housing and domestic energy consumption in Climate Campaigners here.
In a sustainable food system, not only are there huge wins from a climate and environmental perspective - health-related, ethical and financial benefits are also there to enjoy. Read more about food in Climate Campaigners here.
As with previous specific categories, consumption in general should take place within the planetary boundaries - and there are many ways we can move closer to such a state. Read more about other consumption patterns in Climate Campaigners here.
