Take Action

Want to learn more about climate change? Or are you inspired to get involved in campaigns for climate justice? We’ve put together a selection of resources. These are by no means comprehensive but are a great starting point. It’s likely that there are brilliant and experienced action groups in your local area - reach out and connect with those who are already active!

When it comes to the multiple threats our planet faces – loss of wilderness, mass extinctions, extreme weather events, rising inequality, global food insecurity, increased risk of pandemics, rising co2 levels – many now recognise that deep, transformative systems change is the only way to tackle these, not just better green habits at home. So the following suggestions lean towards the collective rather than the individual.


As well as getting up to speed on the science we recommend getting a handle on the politics at play when it comes to climate change. How is it that we’ve known what was up for so long and yet we haven’t taken the kinds of actions needed?
