#SpeakUp Week 2018

What it's all about

The Climate Coalition's #SpeakUp Week is your chance to have a climate heart-to-heart with your MP. Whether it’s your first time talking to your MP or you’re on first-name terms, be part of a national conversation about the impact of climate change on the life we love.

I'm interested in sending a letter to my MP:

We are asking for MPs to sign up to a joint letter to the Prime Minister asking for a UK net zero emissions target before 2050. The UK risks being left behind, countries already committed to net zero before 2050 include France, New Zealand, Costa Rica, Norway and Portugal.

The Climate Coalition has created an MP briefing which explains why we are calling for net zero. Download it here.

140 MPs and peers have already signed up to the cross-party MP letter. See if your MP has signed the letter and download the letter here.

I'm interested in organsing an event:
