Events are happening all around the UK during the Week of Action, as people engage their local MPs in tackling climate change. Use our map to find out what’s happening in your area, and sign up below to join – or host – an event.
Why join the Week of Action?
In March, Earth Hour brought 10 million people together across the UK in a united voice calling for action to #MakeClimateMatter.
The UK has played a leading role in encouraging the world to transition to a low carbon economy. But right now we are on track to miss our emissions reduction targets, and climate action is at risk of stalling. We are still waiting for the promised UK government plan to reduce carbon emissions, and we urgently need to pick up the pace of progress if the UK is to play its part in tackling climate change.
We cannot afford to be passive on climate action.
Just a few weeks away from a new UK Parliament, and a newly elected government that will direct the course of UK action on climate change, it’s up to all of us to keep up the pressure – and to make sure that one of the first things newly elected MPs hear about from their constituents is the urgent need for climate action.
How to take part
Three weeks after the election the Week of Action is happening. During 1–9 July, people all around the UK will be engaging their local MPs in community events, and speaking to them about why we must all work together in tackling climate change. Take part by attending an event in your area – or take the first step by signing up above to organise an event of your own!
You don’t need to have spoken to your MP before or even need to know all the facts and figures about climate change — all you need is a whole lot of love for our amazing planet.

Together, our voices make a difference
Climate change is the single biggest threat to the planet and people, both here in the UK and overseas. The phenomenal amount of support we saw during Earth Hour shows how strongly people all over the country want the UK government to make tackling climate change a number one priority.
We know that politicians are more likely to take action if they realise how much the people they represent care, and how many of us want to see meaningful progress.
We need your voices to tell every single MP just how urgently we must take action to protect the places, people, and planet that we love from climate change.
