Do my actions and conversations make a difference?

Yes, switching to low carbon solutions and talking about climate solutions are things we can all do for a safer climate. Research shows climate conversations with friends and family make a difference, and research shows people are considerably more likely to make low carbon switches if they know other people who are taking action.
