The Speak Up week of action is organised by The Climate Coalition and its members. We’re the UK’s largest group of people dedicated to action on climate change and limiting its impact on the world’s poorest communities.
We have come together to show our love for all the things we could lose to climate change, and to ask politicians to put aside their differences, and commit publicly to do whatever is necessary to protect us and the things we love.
With our sister coalitions Stop Climate Chaos Cymru and Stop Climate Chaos Scotland, our combined supporter base represents more than 15 million people across the UK. Our networks bring together over 100 organisations, from environment and development charities to unions, faith and belief, community and women’s groups.
We want a world with 100% clean energy within a generation. Find out more about the Climate Coalition and the change we want to see.
Climate change is the single biggest threat to the people and places we love, both here in the UK and overseas. We know that most of the UK public want to see progress on tackling climate change. And we know that many politicians are unlikely to take action unless they realise how much we care, and how many of us care.
By talking about the things we love that could be affected by climate change, we can show politicians that this is an issue that affects us all, and that this is a movement they need to be a part of.
Now, more than ever, we need to come together to call for progress on climate change. Whilst there is uncertainty elsewhere, we can be clear about the need to show commitment to tackling climate change, and the need to deliver on our climate promises.
Whether you’re a seasoned community group member or you want to try something a bit different and have fun with people in your area, whether you’re pressed for time or have all the time in the world, there’s a way for you to get involved in the Speak Up week of action.
From 8th - 16th October there will be so many different events going on across the UK: Nature walks, tea parties and visits to community energy projects. There will be lots of people to meet who want to celebrate the people, places and things we want to protect from climate change - and make sure MPs feel that love.
However you decide to get involved, you’ll be part of showing our politicians how many of us care about climate change. If politicians are to act, they need to know that this is something that their constituents care about.Sign up to organise, attend, or just hear about events in your area here: weekofaction.org.uk
