On the 12th August we launched the campaign for the Climate and Ecological Emergency (CEE) bill. This is an alliance bill that has the potential to become the most significant move forward since the Climate Change Act 2008. The presentation of the bill in Parliament this September is just the beginning.
The CEE Bill has been written by scientists, lawyers and activists that is gathering support from a broad range of campaign groups, businesses, charities and individuals. It is based on principles - rather than a set of prescriptions - to be an agile yet scientifically robust bill focused on providing a framework for how to address the climate and ecological emergency.
This is a Private Members’ Bill, and taking it through parliament will be a hard-fought process but it has been done before with the Climate Change Act.
We need your help to sustain a campaign to pass the Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill into law by
- Creating evidence-based materials to support the bill
- Building national and local coalitions among environmental groups, organisations, community groups, local authorities and more
- Using the opportunities of parliamentary democracy to build a groundswell of public and professional support for the campaign
- Mobilising voters in a grassroots campaign
£50,000 is the starting point that will, for instance, allow us to pay for 2 part time Media and Campaign Support staff for a year.
More than 100 people per day are currently signing up to support the CEE bill from across the UK.
Your financial support will help grow a strong campaign through grassroots action and alliance-building until MPs back the campaign and an overwhelming parliamentary majority passes the bill.
