One of the most polluting coal power plants is the one running with Lignite coal. It emits highest amounts of CO2 and also a larger number of polluting side products than many other power plants.

 
Shutting down a power plant for one day or even more would mean a big cut in pollution and therefore reduce the impacts of climate change and send a big message to the world, that together, we can have an impact!

You can take part in this challenge either in the “school” or “individual” category. Commit to the challenge and register for free. The challenge is to reduce electricity bills for either July-August or August-September (according to your billing cycle) in comparison to the bill in the same period last year.
