Costa Rica


Costa Rica is aiming to be the first carbon neutral country worldwide. Although there are national policies to accomplish this, Monteverde lacks a local plan to reduce and capture carbon emissions. In this project, we investigated how Monteverde is promoting carbon neutrality, analyzed data of carbon emissions and sequestration, and created infographics, blogs, and a video as part of a carbon neutrality awareness campaign, on behalf of CORCLIMA. We aimed to develop a campaign targeted at the Monteverde community that raises awareness of carbon emissions to both residents and organizations.
