To build a low-carbon future, we need our governments – both local and national – to act now. They have the power, and the responsibility, to bring about the far-reaching changes that are needed – from replacing fossil fuels with renewable energy, improving energy efficiency, investing in green technology, to decarbonising industry. The decisions they take about the environment, roads, public transport, waste and recycling, air quality and energy efficient homes will determine our future.
Campaigning on the issues that matter helps to show decision-makers that there is widespread support for change. When you add your name to a petition, write a letter, or join a protest, you are making your voice heard.
On this page you can find details of some of the current local climate and nature-related campaigns on issues that affect us here in South Yorkshire. If you have a campaign that you would like to add to this page, please get in touch.
