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.

In 2008 Ireland achieved only a 0.3% reduction in its greenhouse gases, one of the worst in the EU. Every little makes a difference. You can’t blame big businesses like power plants or electricity companies for polluting the atmosphere when it is you who are leaving the lights on.  By making this commitment it actually empowers people to see that it’s not so hard to make the small changes needed to make life for future generations that bit easier.  And it saves money too!

If you have an event or a venue at which people would want to hear about 10:10 and play their part, download all the information material available and become a 10:10 ambassador!

11 NGOs sponsoring 10:10 in Ireland are An Taisce + CELT +  Coastwatch + Cultivate + FEASTA + FIE + IDEA + Irish Wildlife Trust + Irish Seal Sanctuary + Sonairta + VOICE
