HOW BAD IS IT?
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR OUR CHILDREN’S FUTURES?
WHAT IS THE GOVERNMENT DOING TO SAVE OUR CHILDREN’S FUTURES?
We all now know that climate breakdown has started, we see it on our TV screens and we know it in our hearts. In the UK and around the world children are already suffering the consequences and these will only get worse unless we ACT NOW
BUT WHAT CAN I DO?
1. We ask you to take a stand. Send an email to [email protected] (UK President of COP26, Global Climate Summit). Tell him the COP26 summit is the world’s LAST CHANCE.
2. Join Extinction Rebellion & get active - www.extinctionrebellion.uk/join-us/
3. Engage in conversations with others about the issue
4. Make those environmental changes in your own life - you already know what they are - go on, you can do it!
