Debate 2.0: What will it take to make you change?
Posted By Mark Notaras On September 3, 2009 @ 5:45 pm In Debate 2.0 | 19 Comments
Yesterday, Our World 2.0 ran a story on the launch of the 10:10 campaign  in the United Kingdom to encourage individuals and businesses to reduce greenhouse emissions by 10% by the year 2010. 10:10  and campaigns like it around the globe  ask us all to change our high carbon emitting behaviours to save the planet.
But will environmental campaigns about rising temperatures alone encourage you to reduce your emissions? Or will it take something more drastic like higher petrol prices  for you to consider improving your transport options? Or worse still, will you wait until it’s all too late  to get on your bike?
For our second instalment of Debate 2.0, we ask the simple question:
“What will it take to make you change?”
We would also like to hear what events, experiences, knowledge or people have motivated you in the past, or will motivate you in the future, to change your behaviour to be more environmentally sustainable, with a smaller carbon footprint.
Tell us whether you stopped eating meat after visiting an abattoir , switched to new fair trade types of jewellery after watching the Hollywood movie Blood Diamond  or whether you started shrinking your ecological footprint after seeing An Inconvenient Truth .
Let the climate challenge begin!
