Campaigning on the climate this Autumn
The next few months are crucial in the fight to get action on the climate and the ecological emergency.
We need to get the government putting money into a green recovery and speeding up action on climate.
There are lots of groups pushing for action. Let’s support them as much as possible.
These are a few of the campaigns.
There’s a big push to get a Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill through Parliament and this is the main focus for the current XR action. But there are lots of other ways to support it by contacting MPs and raising awareness.
