Vote for the climate
This is the single most important thing you can do to protect Antarctica. As the climate crisis continues to escalate, Antarctica is changing in ways that will impact all of humanity. We need action on a global scale.
Choose leaders who pledge to take rapid, decisive action on climate change. If you are too young to vote, talk to your parents about their choices. Do it for the penguins! Tell them how important it is to you to protect Antarctica, and ask them which leaders will do the most to reduce carbon emissions and slow the climate crisis.
Reduce your carbon emissions
We need to make deep cuts to our carbon emissions to slow the progress of the climate crisis, and help protect Antarctica from runaway climate change. The world is transitioning to a carbon neutral economy, but it’s not happening fast enough. Here are some simple steps you can take to help reduce our global emissions today.
Before you jump in the car, think about other options. Maybe you can catch public transport, use a pushbike or e-bike, or walk. Cut back on flying by taking holidays locally and attending work meetings and conferences online. Do what you can to reduce your energy use. Choose the most energy efficient appliances you can, and turn off the light when you leave the room. All of these small things come together to send a strong message to the markets that we are ready for change.
Tell your friends and family
Celebrate the wonder of this incredible continent that belongs to us all, and bring Antarctica into your daily life in a way that feels fun and meaningful to you.
Throw an Antarctic movie night or an Antarctica theme party with penguin party hats! Host a fundraising dinner with a late-night screening of an Antarctic documentary. Create an Antarctic book club to discuss the extraordinary adventures of Antarctica’s greatest explorers. Draw, paint, make sculptures and write about Antarctica, and share your work with your friends and family. The more everyone understands and cares about Antarctica, the more we’ll be able to protect it.
Planet (and penguin!)-friendly diet
You don’t need to become a vegan, or even vegetarian for your diet to make a difference. Even a small change can have a big impact.
Start by eating more locally produced, plant-based foods. Go to the markets if you can, and support local farmers and food producers. You might also want to try reducing the amount of meat you eat. Try introducing one meat-free day per week, or one meat-free meal per day. If you eat fish, eat a little less fish. Choose small fish, like sardines over large fish, like tuna. Start making small changes – every little bit makes a difference!
