In the 1960’s scientists working in labs around the world were discovering that the carbon dioxide created by human activity had the potential to cause a warming effect on the planet. A subsequent prediction asserted that we would begin to experience these effects, most noticeably in our weather as we entered the twenty-first century. Some sixty years later we now know that ‘warming effect’ as climate change. We’ve gone from the theory to the reality – fairly quickly as it happens. In fact ten of the hottest years on record have been recorded since the year 2000.

The MyNI Community

We are proud of the MyNI community, and like to think of each and every one of you as part of our planet-earth loving team.

We have been equally inspired by the actions of individuals living in Northern Ireland trying to do their bit for the environment as we have by the pretty amazing organisations working to help make us all more aware of the impact of climate change at a local level.

MyNI believes we can all achieve so much more by coming together and sharing our thoughts, actions and social content. This is the space where you can see what’s happening, who is doing it, how you can get involved and maybe even get some inspiration to do your bit too!
