10 10 Brighton and Hove

Climate Change

There’s something special happening on 15th April and YOU can be part of it! You are invited to join in launching our Brighton and Hove 10:10 campaign, which will help people and organisations across the city to reduce carbon emissions by 10% in 2010.

Climate change is a big global issue, but if we all do something together, we can start to have a huge impact locally.

So what’s happening?
We are inviting anyone and everyone in our city-by-the-sea to join us on Thursday 15th April at 12.30pm for a photo launch with The Argus in the front gardens of The Royal Pavilion – so if you support 10:10 and are doing your bit to cut carbon, roll up and get yourself in the paper!

Come and meet the Brighton and Hove 10:10 team, our campaign partners and our carbon cutting pioneers – the individuals, families, schools, community groups, businesses, universities, and organisations of all kinds that will share their 10:10 stories and help spread the word in 2010.

What is 10:10?
It’s simple: We all cut our carbon by 10% this year. You, me, that bloke walking his dog outside, your work, your kids’ school, the council, the church, the chip shop. Everyone.

Brighton and Hove 10:10
10:10 is the national campaign – you can sign up at www.1010uk.org – designed to promote achievable ways to reduce emissions for individuals, schools and universities, businesses and organisations.

The good people at 10:10uk are launching the idea of 10:10cities, and here in Brighton & Hove we’re one of the first cities in the UK to co-ordinate our own localised campaign aimed at inspiring simple steps to cutting carbon in all aspects of everyday life.
