Climate HeroesPodium the winners


Congratulations to all who participated, with 68 teams representing 15 counties around Ireland actively logging climate friendly actions daily. 

If everyone in Ireland made the same small lifestyle changes as the winning team - Ukrainian Volunteers of Ireland Changing the Future - this would amount to a 67.20% reduction in Irelands CO2e. 

This shows that the power of small actions, done together, can really make a difference and that we all can be every day climate heroes.
