What You Can Do
You can help protect and conserve Canada’s Arctic
First – and most important – you can work to reduce your carbon footprint and ask communities, industries and governments to do the same. Climate change is the leading threat to a healthy Arctic future, and addressing global greenhouse gas emissions is one of WWF’s top priorities.
Join the movement to control climate change
National Sweater DayOver a million Canadians have participated in National Sweater Day since 2010. You can join them this winter, simply by lowering your heat for one day and bundling up in a sweater. Have fun, use less energy and be inspired to use less heat all winter.
