Countries Must Take Individual Climate Action in Addition To Universal Agreements

“European Commission: In the EU, each of the EU member states has also put in place its own domestic actions that build on the ECCP measures or complement them.”

====================================================================

Note from author: What is your country doing to combat human-caused climate change? And you personally, what are your contributions to more ethical and ecological choices in your life, overall? If you are unsure, you can start by calculating your personal carbon footprint: WWF: How Big Is Your Environmental Footprint?

We can all do something, and a large number of small contributions will make a big difference. In my personal life, I do currently commute mainly by either walking, cycling, or, by using public transport. I recycle everything possible: biological waste, paper, metal, glass, plastic (yes, we finally have plastics recycling in Finland!), and textiles. I also try to make smarter choices in general regarding personal consumption, starting from electricity to how I use fresh water (at home). Although Finland is one of the leading countries in the world regarding environmental issues/protection, we still have a lot of work ahead of us in order to improve things.
