why LANDSCAPE professionals need to act
We now have 415 ppm of CO2 in the atmosphere; the last time these temperatures were last seen on Earth was 3 million years ago when average temperatures were about 3 degrees warmer and sea levels were 10-20m higher than they are today.
Increased sea levels and atmospheric warming will likely impact us all, but there is an opportunity to mitigate the worst of these effects. The most recent IPCC report highlights serious climate change can be avoided if we reduce our carbon emissions by 50% by 2030.
Scientists have given their second warning to humanity.
The Landscape profession is in a unique position to help fight climate change - through our actions as individuals and through our landscape schemes. This website is intended as a resource to support anyone who works in the Landscape profession to create climate postive landscapes.
