The European Commission has launched a campaign to build public awareness of climate change. Using the slogan „You control climate change“, the campaign encourages citizens to adopt certain everyday habits to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The campaign which kicked off on 29 May 2006 encourages the public to sort waste, leave the car in the garage, use public transport, not to leave electrical devices switched on, and so on. In short: „turn down, switch off, recycle, walk“.
