Det kan godt være, at klimaet er rykket ned under punktet eventuelt på politikernes dagsorden. Langt ned under den altoverskyggende finanskrise. Men for danskerne er klimaet stadig noget af det vigtigste.
Last weekend over 400 families gathered in a park in Lefkosia, for the 'KidCulture Family Expo', the first festival of its kind for Cyprus.
Despite the scorching heat the turn out was good and the event a great success for all involved.
The festival targeted expectant and new parents as well as educators and health professionals, and aimed to encourage environmental awareness in exhibitors and visitors alike. An innovative and eco conscious show, rare for Cyprus, that incorporated carbon cutting ideas in its organisation including recycling and water saving.
The carbon footprint of making a car is immensely complex. Ores have to be dug out of the ground and the metals extracted. These have to be turned into parts. Other components have to be brought together: rubber tyres, plastic dashboards, paint, and so on. All of this involves transporting things around the world. The whole lot then has to be assembled, and every stage in the process requires energy. The companies that make cars have offices and other infrastructure with their own carbon footprints, which we need to somehow allocate proportionately to the cars that are made.
Car parking at our Hemel Hempstead Civic Centre has always been a contentious issue, as there often isn’t enough space in the staff car park, so I thought there might be a way to tackle that problem as well as reducing the emissions produced by staff commuting to work.
