We're facing a climate emergency
Climate breakdown affects all of us. From flood-stricken homes in Yorkshire to smouldering forests in North America and tropical cyclones in Bangladesh, extreme weather events are becoming all too common. And they’re forcing millions of the world’s poorest people from their homes.
Time is running out in the fight to protect people and planet. We know what our leaders must do and with your support we can demand they act. Take action now.

Is a green future possible?
Just last year, 42% of the UK’s electricity came from renewable energy. A green future is possible. But we need more ambition and investment from the government to secure a truly green future.
The government and some local councils are still pushing harmful fossil fuel projects, but with your support we can continue our vital campaigning to stop them. Our Climate Action Plan details how the government can phase out fossil fuels and switch to green energy instead, creating more green jobs and transitioning fossil fuel workers into new industries. With your help, we can continue to push our plan in front of decision-makers.
