Sign the Climate Coalition’s Declaration for a Healthy, Greener, Fairer Tomorrow. The UK is at a turning point. As we build back from the current health crisis, we have the opportunity to rebuild a resilient economy that benefits everyone in society and tackle climate change and nature’s decline, creating jobs and protecting the most vulnerable in the UK and around the world. Or we can let the moment for change pass us by, go back to old ways and wait for new crises to hit. The Climate Coalition is organising a virtual mass lobby on Tuesday 30th June: https://www.theclimatecoalition.org/virtual-lobby
