This year, every moment matters and every action counts.
2021 is crucial in the fight for climate justice. As the world rightly focused on coronavirus last year, some important climate milestones were missed or delayed. But the climate crisis is not on pause. For millions of our friends around the world, the pandemic arrived on top of existing crises brought on by the changing climate.
This year we have some important opportunities to make progress. On the global stage, 2021 is the biggest opportunity the UK climate movement has ever had to shape climate ambition. This summer, the UK is hosting the G7 meeting, and in November we will host COP26, the crucial UN climate change talks that must put us on track to meet the commitments made in Paris 5 years ago.
At home, the decisions that the UK government is taking right now to deal with the social and economic impacts of the pandemic could help us to tackle the climate crisis too. But only if we use this moment to invest in a green and just recovery – and a global recovery that includes the world’s poorest communities and leaves no one behind.
Please sign our petition now to make sure that the Prime Minister knows that this year, every moment matters and every action counts.
There will be plenty of moments to make your actions count this year. We’ll be praying and acting for climate justice throughout the year and we hope you’ll join us.
