About Blue Planet Climate Protection Foundation
The establishment of Blue Planet Climate Protection Foundation was defined by an important recognition: although there have been discourses on climate change for decades and there are ongoing discussions about the potential danger to our lives, we dare not go any further. For twenty-five years we have been aware of the alarming forecasts of a darker future, international agreements however, in themselves, will not help either if countries do not adhere to them or do not drastically reduce their emissions.
The aim of Blue Planet Climate Protection Foundation is to increase the sensitivity of the Hungarian society to environmental and sustainability problems, and involve local communities in solving them. Developing a sense of personal environmental responsibility and commitment to tackling climate change is vital to making a change. To this end, the Foundation strongly supports the development of multi-level education on environmental protection and climate change, the development of the society's environmental awareness, and the change of individuals' and the society's values, behaviour, producer and consumer habits and aspirations. They also support the development of new connections between society and the environment, action against the impact of climate change, local and national community adaptation programs.
