Speak Up Week of Climate Action!

8th-16th October in a Week of Action organised by the Climate Coalition to celebrate the people, places and things we want to protect from climate change - and to make sure politicians know the strength of feeling on this topic.

Climate Change has huge potential to damage the natural world. Scientists already believe that climate change may have destroyed the Great Barrier Reef beyond any hope of proper recovery. You can read the heartbreaking Obituary for the reef here.

Closer to home, our woodlands and urban trees are threatened by climate change. You can read the Woodland Trust's perspective on climate change here.

If you love something, you want to protect it so everyone who loves nature needs to work to protect nature from climate change and we need also to let politicians know how much we care about the natural world. You can do this by joining in the week of action. You can find out what's happening in your local area here. You can also organise an event yourself, I particularly like the Woodland Trust's suggestion of inviting your local MP to 'meet a wise old tree' (use the Trust's Ancient Tree Inventory to find your nearest wise old tree)!
