Rio Connection youth resources: Our Future, Our Earth

It’s our Future. Our Earth.
African Climate Connection at North Shropshire school
With leaders from around the world meeting at a ‘Rio+20’ summit this June, now is the perfect time to decide whether we as a planet are heading in the right direction. Our young people are the generation who can make this world a better place.

Ask David Cameron to support stronger climate targets!

David Cameron will be giving his first speech on the environment since taking office next Thursday 26th April.

Together we can convince our Prime Minister to stand strong, and back targets to reduce EU emissions by 30% by 2020 in this key climate speech.

A stronger EU climate target will be crucial for increasing ambition at the next UN climate talks, but the preparatory work needs to be done now. And we need David Cameron to show his public support for a stronger EU target.

Can you take 2 minutes to email David Cameron to ask him to stand strong on emissions targets?

Climate change at 2012 local authority elections

Local authorities have a key role to play in reducing Scotland's greenhouse gas emissions. The local elections in May this year offer an opportunity for all political parties to renew their commitment to climate change action at the local level.

Stop Climate Chaos Scotland has come together to identify five key areas which we would like to see all parties include in their manifestos for the local elections, to be taken forward by all local authorities after the elections.
