10:10:10 pictures

Dear 10:10ers,

Sometimes words just aren't enough. 10:10 was launched just over a year ago to unite people, businesses, communities, schools, hospitals, sports clubs and everyone else around immediate, practical action on climate change. Sunday's Day of Doing was a demonstration of just how powerful this action can be.

I'm sure we'll be writing and talking a lot about 10:10:10 over the next few days, but for now I want to let the pictures speak for themselves. Check out the slideshow to see:

- Thousands of events large and small in more than 50 countries around the world.
- Three capital cities signing-up – Mexico City, Paris and Zagreb!
- Nearly 60,000 trees planted in Eastern Europe, Russia and North Africa.
- Prime-time TV show in the Netherlands
- 10:10 in lights at Picadilly Circus.
- ...and some dogs in 10:10 T-shirts!

But that doesn't even scratch the surface. Click here to browse hundreds more pictures, or watch a video roundup here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/tentenuk/collections/72157624985009493/?utm....

The big picture

Of course, 10:10 isn't just about one day. It's about people and organisations cutting their carbon by 10% in a year. Some of the early signups (including the British Embassy in Argentina and London bank Investec) have already completed their first 10%, and lots more are getting close.

The journey to a safe climate isn't a sprint – it's a marathon. Cutting 10% in a year by itself won't get us a low-carbon society, but it does point us in the right direction. And what Sunday has shown us is that there's a lot to enjoy along the way. I'm talking about making new friends, building stronger communities, learning new skills, saving some money, getting active, making culinary discoveries, lobbying our MPs, getting our hands dirty in the garden and putting green things on our heads, just because we can.

Make every day a Day of Doing

Whether you signed up yesterday, or you're a carbon-cutting veteran (I reckon I'm somewhere in the middle!), there's always something else you can do. If you need some inspiration, take a look at the blogs and resources on the website. It would be great if you could also think about how to encourage your friends, colleagues and family to move towards a low-carbon lifestyle – it is much easier, and more fun, if we do this together!

Thank you so much for all you've done. There's still a long way to go, but I've never been more confident that we can make it.

P.S. I thought you might like to see a shot from my own family's low-carbon lunch at home yesterday. We cooked our own interpretation of Hugh's F-W's roast chicken with pumpkin and onions. Highly recommended!
