This year we are joining with The Climate Coalition for the Speak Up week of action across the UK from 8-16 October. Communities across the UK will come together to Speak Up for the love of the people, places and cherished things affected by climate change.

These exciting local events will give you the opportunity to meet other people who are passionate about tackling climate change in your area and to ask your local MP what progress has been made since last June.

Together, we can reach our vision of 100% clean energy in a generation, so that everyone can live life to the full.
