The site, www.1010uk.org, believes by working together we can achieve a 10% cut in carbon emissions during 2010.

The campaign is called 10:10 and the organisers hope everyone in the UK will take part in it.

A spokesman for the campaign said: “Cutting 10% in one year is a bold target, but for most of us it’s an achievable one, and is in line with what scientists say we need right now.

“By signing up to 10:10 we’re not just promising to reduce our own emissions – we’re becoming part of a national drive to hit this ambitious goal country-wide.

“In our homes, in our workplaces, our schools and our hospitals, our galleries and football clubs and universities, we’ll be backing each other up as we take the first steps on the road to becoming a low-carbon society.”
