As COP26 draws near, our campaign to ask Boris Johnson MP to prioritise our Three COP Outcomes We Can't Live Without is picking up the pace, with the Prime Minister's father—environmentalist and CEN Ambassador, Stanley Johnson—joining our campaign. Get involved today!
Ask your Councillors to back our Climate and Nature Declaration
“If we fail to limit global warming to 1.5°C, floods and fires will get more frequent and more fierce, crops will be more likely to fail, and sea levels will rise driving mass migration as millions are forced from their homes. Above 1.5°C, we risk reaching climatic tipping points, meaning we could lose control of our climate for good.”Write to my Councillors
Ahead of the Glasgow summit next month, we are calling on the UK Government to prioritise Zero Hour's Three COP Outcomes as part of the UK's efforts at both the climate summit, COP26, and the biodiversity summit, COP15. We are urging the Prime Minister to urgently consider the following three policies ahead of these important international conferences—and here's how you can help:
- Creating a joint emergency strategy for climate and nature
- Committing to the carbon budget for 1.5°C, and
- Going nature positive by 2030.
We set out these key recommendations in our report—Three COP Outcomes We Can't Live Without—which we recently launched with Prof. Sir David King (Centre for Climate Repair, Cambridge University), Prof. EJ Milner-Gulland (Interdisciplinary Centre for Conservation Science, Oxford University) and Prof. Kevin Anderson (CUSP, Surrey University). Please click here to read the report, and click here to watch the report launch event.
The response from the scientific, academic and NGO community has been fantastic, and we're delighted that many of the UK's top environmental campaigners and experts are backing our call for action, including:
With COP26 now only days away, we'll continue to grow support from across the UK for our Three COP Outcomes, and urge all MPs—ahead of the Commons debate on COP26 and keeping 1.5°C alive—to push the UK Government to make a serious, joined-up plan to tackle the climate-nature emergency now; before it's too late.
