JOIN THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE IN WESTMINSTER TO TELL MPS THE TIME IS NOW FOR ACTION. THE TIME IS NOW TO FIGHT FOR OUR CLIMATE, NATURE, AND PEOPLE.
As members of the Climate Coalition Cambridge Carbon Footprint are encouraging people from around Cambridgeshire to join us and others from right across the UK on the 26th June at Westminster to call on our politicians to set the foundations for a brighter,greener and safer world.
People across the globe are suffering from the effects of climate change and our wildlife populations are being wiped out. The time is now for MPs to end the UK’s contribution to climate change and pass ambitious laws that create a healthier environment for nature and people. We simply don’t have time to waste.
THIS SUMMER WILL SEE THE GOVERNMENT:
Decide whether to commit to end the UK’s contribution to climate change by setting a net zero emissions target. Propose ambitious new laws which would clean up our air, slash plastic pollution and restore wildlife to our countryside.
At a time when political parties are becoming increasingly divided, we need to ensure the government doesn’t lose momentum on tackling climate change and the big issues affecting our environment. Let’s show that regardless of political differences we want them to act now.
If you’d like to journey down with others from Cambridge, we will be meeting at 10:45 am at Cambridge North Station (taking the 11:01am train) and 11am at Cambridge Station (taking the 11:14am train). Or connect with others attending by emailing us, or RSVPing to our Facebook event.
1PM: THE LOBBY BEGINS
It may take a while to find your constituency’s area, so please allow plenty of time and ensure you’re in the lobby line by 1pm.
1-4PM: MEET OUR MPS AROUND PARLIAMENT
10,000 of us will meet with our MPs in the streets around Parliament, all at the same time! See page 8 to find out how this will work.
AT 2PM WE WILL PAUSE TO CREATE A NOISE SO LOUD POLITICIANS WON’T BE ABLE TO IGNORE IT. For far too long, politicians have been pressing the snooze button. On the day, we want to create a noise that cannot be ignored. At 2pm, whilst we are gathered in the lobby line, we are going to set off as many alarm clocks as possible. By doing so, we will send a message to Westminster that they need to wake up and respond to the challenges our beautiful world is facing.
If you have a portable alarm clock at home, please bring this with you on the day and schedule it to go off at 2pm. And if you don’t, don’t worry — you can use your phone! Together, let’s send a message to Parliament that The Time is Now for action.
