Mass lobby of Parliament for Climate Action

26th June 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The Time is Now. Join a mass lobby of Parliament for climate and the environment.

There is a coach going from Portsmouth

This Summer, the Government will decide whether to end the UK’s contribution to climate change by committing to a net zero emissions target.

They will also have the chance to end nature’s decline by committing to a strong Environment Bill. Now is the time to push for bold action.

On June 26th, thousands of us from every corner of Britain will take our message straight to Parliament in what we hope will be the largest mass lobby for climate and the environment the UK has ever seen.

This is being organised by the Climate Coalition and Greener UK, both coalitions which represent millions of people across the UK.

Who we are

The Time is Now is supported by a wide range of organisations. From sports and nature to faith and parents groups, we represent a diverse range of people from across the UK unified by one thing: we passionately want to protect the things we love from climate change and environmental damage. The Time is Now mass lobby is being organised by The Climate Coalition and Greener UK, two coalitions of organisations that represent millions of people across the UK. From surfers to scientists, bird watchers to doctors, everyone has a stake in the state of our environment.

Why Now?

This summer the government will decide whether to end the UK’s contribution to climate change by committing to an ambitious net zero emissions target. They will also have the chance to end nature’s decline by committing to a strong Environment Bill. Now is the time to push for bold action. What are we doing? On June 26th, thousands of us from every corner of Britain will take our message straight to Westminster. We will rally around Parliament, come face to face with our MPs to tell them that The Time Is Now for action on climate change and the environment. It’ll all kick off at 1pm. We’ll snake round Westminster, organised town by town, village by village, and we’ll meet our MPs one-by-one to tell them that we want action!

What next? Spread the word! Email your MP and tell them you’re coming. Invite your friends, family, colleagues and neighbours. We want as many people as possible to join us to show the government that this is an issue their constituents care about. If you can’t make it to London why not get your community together to organise a regional meeting with your MP?
