Promoting awareness is one tool for climate action.

Mitigation

Actions aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions to limit the extent of climate change. This includes transitioning to renewable energy sources, improving energy efficiency, implementing carbon pricing mechanisms, and promoting sustainable land use practices.

Adaptation

Measures taken to adjust to the impacts of climate change that are already occurring or expected to occur in the future. Adaptation strategies may include building resilient infrastructure, enhancing water management systems, protecting natural habitats, and developing early warning systems for extreme weather events.

Climate action (or climate change action) refers to a range of activities, mechanisms, policy instruments and so forth that aims at reduce the severity of human induced climate change and its impacts. "More climate action" is a central demand of the climate movement.[1] Climate inaction is the absence of climate action.
