the Living Planet Community is an online community for concerned Canadians who want to stop talking about climate change and start taking personal action to reduce their CO2 emissions that contribute to dangerous man made climate change. When you join the Living Planet Community, you are lending your voice to a collective, positive and unified call for everyone - government, business and individuals - to do their part to fight climate change.
As a member of the Living Planet Community, we ask that your engagement be positive, supportive and respectful. If a member is deemed to be engaging in an abusive or defamatory fashion we reserve the right to lock down access to the community for that member.
And we look forward to hearing from you - do you have some experiences to share? Know of an outstanding individual or business in your community that you would like to tell us about? Have an idea for a new greenhouse gas reduction action that you'd like to see added to our list?
Please make your submission to email@example.com and try to keep it below 350 words. Jpeg images, up to a maximum of three, may also be submitted along with the copy.
Your entry will be reviewed and, if it's chosen for posting, someone from the Living Planet Community team will be in touch!
By submitting you consent to having WWF-Canada post your idea, image or video to the the Living Planet Community website, and you acknowledge that you have the permission of the individual(s) in the photograph(s) or video(s) to submit for this purpose.

Dear pebble. Thank you for throwing yourself into the Living Planet Community pond. You are already making ripples. And remember, ripples become waves.
It's a bit corny but completely true. Canadians are way ahead of our governments and the marketplace in taking action on global warming. Joining the Living Planet Community shows you are willing to act to stop dangerous climate change, and that you expect others - individuals, businesses and governments - to do their part too.
Your participation in the Living Planet Community helps demonstrate to key decision makers in government and business that Canadians want action on climate change. This means your individual actions can have far greater impact than the direct greenhouse gas reductions you'll add up on your profile - as important as those are.
With your support, we can achieve tremendous results encouraging all Canadians, including our governments, to do their part to fight global warming.
