“COOL CHOICE” Activities

[What is COOL CHOICE?]

●The rising Earth’s temperature has become a major concern worldwide. With an increase in global warming having implications of atmospheric temperature also affects the core temperatures. In the last 100 years, the average temperature in Japan has risen by 1°C. The major cause of global warming being CO2 emissions has recently increased from households because people choose lifestyle convenience over environment-friendly choices.

●Smart energy-saving ideas and technologies are Japanese born since for a long time Japan has been a country with very limited resources. Cutting-edge technologies have gained a lot of praise and reputation from the world. Technologies being modern and not old fashioned and at the same time being eco-friendly by reducing CO2 emissions makes them worthy of “TECH FOR THE NEXT-GENERATION”.

●Simple individual efforts can bring great change. Imagine how “Many drops make a mighty ocean”. Simple lifestyle changes like turning off lights, power-saving on air conditioners, saving water, and also eco-friendly cars, home appliances, and necessities can bring change. The future will change if we choose to.
