10:10 Ireland

Welcome

It's easy to feel overwhelmed by climate change, but it doesn't have to be this way. What if we resolved to cut 10% of our emissions in 2010?

Not a bad start. What if we got everyone we know to do the same? And what if all this made governments sit up and take notice? Maybe this could be the first step towards a brighter future. Time to stop imagining. It's happening right now.

Sign up today and be a part of it.

In Ireland 565 people, 62 businesses, 30 organisations and 23 educational institutions have signed up to 10:10. The latest excitement is the commitment of the Kildare Partnership to reduce its emissions by 10% this year.

Ireland’s 10:10 ambassadors are two more than life size Polar Bears who want to visit every part of Ireland to spread the word about 10:10. The 8 foot tall, blinking, walking, talking and dancing Polar Bears set off from Dublin Zoo in January to encourage the people of Ireland to reduce their carbon emissions by 10% in 2010.

Dublin ZOO joined 62 businesses supporting 10:10 to date in Ireland. Dublin Zoo Director Leo Oosterweghel said ‘We are incredibly happy to support this very worthwhile Campaign. We will be endeavouring to lower our emissions by 10% this year".

The Bears have toured Galway, Kilkenny, Meath, and Dublin. Get in touch with 10:10 for them to visit your environmental event!

Taking 10:10 to Ireland

At Facebook’s head offices in Dublin the Minister for the Environment signed up to 10:10. Minister John Gormley has also written to all Government Minister asking them to review their carbon footprints and sign up to 10:10.

Now we need to take the campaign into Ireland and try to unite every sector of the country behind one simple idea: that by working together we can achieve a 10% cut in the country’s carbon emissions in 2010.
