2020 marked the beginning of a critical decade for climate change in the UK. To avoid hitting an irreversible tipping point, the UK set itself crucial climate targets to reach before 2030, but attention quickly turned to the ongoing pandemic. As we begin our national recovery, we need to make sure that climate change is a part of the conversation of how we can build back better.
This is where Hope for the Future comes in - we work to equip anyone interested in getting more involved with the climate crisis with the tools they need to make meaningful change. We do this through helping people like you to effectively engage with your MP and local representatives on issues that affect you and our planet, regardless of where you live, the party you support or your previous experience with politics.
Our Build Back Greener campaign is all about making this happen, and we’ve highlighted five key areas, which align with the COP26 priority themes, where together, we can make the most difference: transport, energy, nature, adaption and climate finance.
Over the month of June we’re aiming to raise £10,000 which we’ll use to:
- Run free open-access training sessions on how to engage with your MP
- Develop policy resources freely available on our website and issue a series of briefings on each of the 5 themes of COP26
- Create tailored lobbying strategies for each individual MP designed to make sure your ask gets through
- Get a member of our team to attend the MP meeting with you if you choose
Please consider supporting our campaign today, so that together we can make sure our recovery from the pandemic supports the recovery of our planet. Thank you from us all at Hope for the Future!
