On 26th June thousands of us gathered at Westminster, central London, to call on our politicians to set the foundations for a brighter, greener and safer world. People across the globe are suffering from the effects of climate change and our wildlife populations are being wiped out.
At 2pm an estimated 12,000 people set their alarms to signal to parliament that the time is now for MPs to end the UK’s contribution to climate change and pass ambitious laws for nature's recovery on land and at sea. We simply don’t have time to waste.
This was the largest ever environmental lobby of parliament with at least 220 MPs meeting with their constituents.
‘The Time is Now’ lobby was organised by The Climate Coalition and Greener UK, two coalitions combining more than 130 organisations and representing over 15 million people
We met with four of Nottinghamshire's MPs on the day; Lilian Greenwood, Chris Leslie, Anna Soubry and Alex Norris.
Below is a short clip from the Mass Lobby from Anna Soubry and Chris Leslie meeting with constituents from Broxtowe and Nottingham East.
Couldn't join us but still want to make a difference?
If you couldn't make it then don’t worry, as there are other ways to make your voice heard. We are asking people to share why they care about nature’s recovery, so that we can hand deliver these personal messages to MPs over the summer and autumn. It’s crucial as many of us make our voices heard as possible, as now is the time for our politicians to stand up for stronger environmental laws. Join us in taking action for a Wilder Future and help write the next chapter for our natural world today.
MPs want to know what it is you care about. Not only do they want to hear from you, they have a duty to listen - their job is to represent you in Parliament! So tell them that #TheTimeIsNow to take action.
All the MPs we spoke to at the lobby recognise the importance of these issues and that their constituents are passionate, they want to know the changes we want to see in policy.
