Everyone has a part to play in the fight against climate change. 

Each year, Défi Climat, Quebec's largest awareness-raising and mobilization campaign in the fight against climate change, encourages organizations and individuals to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. In 2011, for example, more than 50,000 people committed to making lifestyle changes to help the environment.

Individual participants chose from 22 greenhouse gas reducing actions, including some for the very daring: 

  • use active transportation and public transit
  • recycle old electronic appliances
  • eat less meat

The campaign provided the CO2 equivalent for each lifestyle change as well as a description of any additional health or economic benefits.  Many prizes were awarded!
