Call for a climate action plan in your local area

We’re facing a climate emergency – the greatest ever threat to our existence and a disaster for the natural world.

A comprehensive climate action plan is long overdue. But instead our government keeps making climate-wrecking decisions – like supporting airport expansion and funding the fossil fuel industry overseas.

That’s why we urgently need local authorities to lead the way where the government isn’t – and create their own ambitious local climate action plans. With your support, communities across the UK can build a movement so powerful that the government has to step up its action on climate change.
