Breaking Boundaries documentary launch 气候行动网络
The producers and partners behind the Netflix documentary on the Planetary Boundaries launch website on how consumers can reduce their own emissions
- Documentary follows the scientific discovery of the nine planetary boundaries which was led by centre professor Johan Rockstrom
- The new website provides simple steps people can take to reduce their own emissions and encourage others to do the same
- "It is important to provide incentives for this group of consumers to do more,” says Johan Rockstrom
In advance of the UN’s 2021 climate summit, the producers of Netflix’s Breaking Boundaries and partners are launching a 气候行动网络. 这个新网站, backed by a campaign with TikTok influencers, provides science-backed steps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
《伟德官网app》纪录片, 首次在今年6月播出, focuses on the planetary boundaries framework developed by an international team of scientists led by the Stockholm Resilience Centre.
The new website provides simple steps people can take to reduce their own emissions and encourage others to do the same. The website is built around the Count Us In initiative which provides 16 ways people can act on climate change.
The climate steps were informed by Project Drawdown’s research which identified the most material individual and household actions that, 在规模, have the potential to reduce roughly 25-30% of the total global emission reductions needed to avoid dangerous climate change.
我们知道 最富裕的10% - primarily the world’s middle classes and wealthy elites - are responsible for 40–60% of greenhouse gas emissions. So it is important to provide incentives for this group of consumers to do more.
Johan Rockstrom, co-founder of the Stockholm Resilience Centre and director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate 伟德官方网址 研究
In 2009, Rockström led a group of 28 internationally renowned scientists to identify the nine processes that regulate the stability and resilience of the Earth system in the Holocene state - the last 10,000年. In 2015, the scientists concluded four boundaries had already been transgressed: climate, 生物多样性, forests and biogeochemical cycles (use of nitrogen and phosphorus fertilizers).
从那时起, the planetary boundaries framework has generated enormous interest within science and policy.
2021年6月4日, the framework achieved a much broader public audience when it became the subject of a documentary film called Breaking Boundaries: The Science of Our Planet, produced by Silverback Films and released on Netflix.
现在, with the climate summit approaching in Glasgow, the Breaking Boundaries filmmakers have launched a 气候行动网站 in partnership with non-profit Count Us In to share the most important climate steps people can take - alongside governments, business and communities - to meaningfully tackle climate change.
“When we combine science and storytelling we see immense potential to inspire people to take action,欧文·加夫尼说, an associate producer on the Breaking Boundaries documentary and a writer and analyst at Stockholm Resilience Centre and Potsdam Institute for Climate 伟德官方网址 研究.
