Part of this website is oriented towards the average consumer, with
useful advise and recommendations. They are urged to decrease harmful
emissions for example when building a new house or buying electric
appliances. Furthermore there are suggestions on how they can decrease
their carbon footprint. There are photo and press report archives, a
newsletter that you can sign up to and a climate blog. These features
are useful for journalists as well as other people.
"We want our politicians to pass a new law, that states obligatory
targets for decreasing greenhouse gas emissions in the Czech republic
and whole of the European union. For this we need the support of the
public," said Hana Gabrielová, who represents the Calla association,
revealing the future plans of environmental nongovernmental organizations.
The creation and maintenance of the website www.zmenaklimatu.cz is part
of project supported by Heinrich-Böll-Stifung.
