To sensitize French citizens for the importance of individual action on climate change. It was initiated through a state-sponsored nationwide TV and newspaper campaign in 2004 to boost awareness. Local partnership events organized by communities, companies, and NGOs followed. They served as occasions to approach people directly with advice on how to reduce household energy consumption, for example with leaflets and guidebooks.


In 2005, awareness of the ongoing campaign was polled at 71%. Of those recalling at least one TV spot, 80% say they will pay more attention to their personal energy consumption in the future. Also, 45% of those reached by the campaign say they have already changed at least one of their energy consumption habits as a result from the information given.
