Take action for nature and the climate

The nature and climate emergency threatens our daily life as we know it.  But you can help. Stand with thousands of others in the fight that unites us all. 

What’s happening 

World leaders will come together from 31 October until 12 November in Glasgow for the 26th UN Climate Change Conference, known as COP26.  They will make long-lasting decisions about the future of our planet that will affect nature, wildlife, and people.

We’re asking you talk to your local politician(s) about a nature issue that matters to you through our online form below. There is an opportunity in the build-up to COP26 to show politicians the strength of feeling that people have in the UK to save nature.

We want you to shout louder for nature. Is there an issue in your local area that you think politicians should act on for nature? Are you concerned about the way that world leaders are showing up for nature, people, and planet? This is your chance to speak up and let politicians know exactly what you think about the nature crisis and their role in solving it.

Tell them what matters to YOU!

What can you do? 

You can tell your politicians to step up!

They work for you so your voice matters to them. 

Contact your local politician(s) and ask them to stand up for nature in whatever way is important to you. 

You could ask them to ensure the UK Government is leading the way and setting ambitious legally-binding targets across all legislation that protects and restores nature, reduces carbon emissions and ensures that financial decisions and future funding consider the impact on nature and climate change.

Or tell them to ensure that planning policies across the UK protect key sites and habitats or to ensure that farmers and land-owners are helping to protect and enhance crucial biodiversity in the way they manage their land.

Whatever you’re passionate about, however you think political leaders should act for nature, this is your chance to shout louder for nature and climate.

If enough of us speak on behalf of nature, decision-makers have to act.

How should I do it? 

Three really simple steps 

  1. Use this template – it's really easy.  Pop in your address and postcode and we’ll generate a blank email to your local politician(s). Tell them why you think protecting nature is crucial to addressing the climate crisis and ask them to prioritise this and make sure the UK Governments are doing enough.   
  2. Then take a selfie of you sending your letter, share it on social media with #myclimateaction and be one of thousands of people making their voice heard and inspiring others to do the same. 
  3. Why not tag in a friend and challenge them to do the same or even tag in your local newspaper and encourage them to talk about this important moment.   think protecting nature is crucial to addressing the climate crisis and ask them to prioritise this and make sure the UK Governments are doing enough.
