News channels and our social media feeds were filled with images from around the world as millions of people took to the streets, taking part in the global climate strikes inspired by Greta Thunberg or Extinction Rebellion’s non-violent protests. The message was clear: there’s never been a more important time to act.

Now that 2020 is getting into full swing, we want to keep the momentum going. To help give us all some inspiration, we used the hashtag #Sus100 to ask the 100 most influential people in the twitter sustainability community to suggest one thing that we can all change in 2020 to protect the environment. Their responses ranged from choices we can make on an individual level to campaigning for change from businesses and governments.
