2030orBust

2030orBust believes, if 1 in 16 people take simple climate-actions, we can get on track to ending the climate crisis. By taking these simple actions, we avoid the 2 degree Celsius increase the 2020 UN Gap Report talks about. With that behind us, we can be on track by 2030 to build a sustainable future, and ending the climate crisis will become a reality in the foreseeable future. We say that The 2030 Game is the way to end the climate crisis. The 2030 Game is not just about the environment; it’s about taking ownership of the current state of the climate. It is an opportunity to have your word and actions heard in the matter of ending the climate crisis. Take action, reduce your footprint, download the 2030orBust app and start tracking your actions today!
