What does the net carbon zero lifestyle look like


Session for secondary schools


Find out about presenter Rosalind's going to a net carbon zero lifestyle


"On September 1st 2019, I stepped through a portal into a net zero carbon world, I wanted to immerse myself in what this new dawn of civilisation might look and feel like. For a whole year, I attempted to live as closely as possible within the net carbon zero individual carbon budget of around one tonne of carbon per year. This is my 'rough guide' to living the net carbon zero lifestyle (so we can keep below the threshold of 1.5 degree global heating). 


I am an environmental campaigner, artist and activist. I am also standing as an Independent London Mayoral candidate in the London Mayoral election in May 2021. I believe social change is built on a foundation of individual practice, which in turn informs good policy, collective decision making and investment."
