Working together, on national and international level!
In 2015, some 200 countries signed a new, ambitious climate treaty at the Paris climate conference. The aim is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 40% by 2030, compared with 1992. That is why the bar has been set higher for Thick Jumper Day in 2016.
While climate change has local consequences, it is essentially a global issue. So it is vital that we work nationally and internationally to change this. The projects that got started on Thick Jumper Day 2016 were no longer limited to one day a year, but ran for one month and focused on national and international cooperation. In 2017, Thick Jumper Day will also continue to develop an international network with schools, businesses, governments and organisations to have a greater impact on greenhouse gas emissions and consequently on climate change.
