Climate action tips - how can I avoid CO2?

The way to a climate neutral lifestyle or a "zero CO2-balance " is a process. That Paris Climate Agreement of 2015 aims to achieve global climate neutrality by 2050. In order to be able to achieve this goal, we have to take many small and concrete steps. All of us!

A first small step for you could e.g. be to reduce one's own meat consumption to 1-2 days a week and to pay attention to regional value chains when buying meat. Another personal goal could be to question your own mobility behavior and from now on to pedal more often for short trips instead of driving. There are countless small and feasible ways to relieve the climate.

It is important for your own motivation to look for like-minded people and to exchange ideas regularly - together with others CO2-saving is just more fun.
