How does the climate crisis affect you?
It is an environmental crisis from various perspectives. What affects me as a Nordic surfer, is off course, the amount of plastics in the ocean, increasing algal blooming every year, recommendations no to enter the sea due to pollutions, etc, etc. But I am extremely privileged to live up here, in the Nordics. I think a lot about people living on warmer latitudes with harder conditions.
How can we be more responsible regarding our climate impact?
There are several aspects. To me the most important thing is that world leaders make the right decisions and immediately implements rules to prioritize the wellbeing of nature and reduce our environmental impact.
As individuals we have different voices and different pre-conditions – Focus and explore how You can make the best out of it. Maybe offset your carbon footprint, support different environmental organizations or maybe start skipping meat. I know one thing – the things we do together makes a difference. If we put proper pressure on our governments the changes will come more rapidly.
