Show the Love 2018
This February hundreds of WIs took part in the Climate Coalition's Show the Love campaign, to see a selection of images and more about the NFWI's climate change campaign, please click here.
The NFWI is a founding member of The Climate Coalition (TCC), the UK’s largest group of people dedicated to action on climate change and limiting its impact on the people, places and life we love at home in the UK and around the world, including the world’s poorest countries. Together with Stop Climate Chaos in both Wales and Scotland we are over 15 million people from all parts of the UK.
Show the Love revolves around community based climate change action around Valentine's Day. To start a conversation about climate change members made and shared green hearts with their local MP, held green heart themed meetings and joined forces with other community groups to organise public events.
Below are all the resources from 2018 Show the Love.
