Environment Commissioner accepts bet from youth campaign

A European-wide youth campaign has bet the Environment Commissioner, Margot Wallstrom, that they can decrease carbon dioxide emissions in schools across Europe.

Officially launched on 22 November, The Bet includes pupils from Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, Portugal, Spain, and Switzerland. The campaign has bet that at least 88 schools across Europe will be able to save 8% carbon dioxide in 8 months.

The Bet is being supported by Friends of the Earth Europe and the European Commission, and is being independently adjudicated by the European Environment Agency.
