We are all dealing with a lot at the moment, and I hope over the weekend you were able to get outside and find moments of calm in nature.
This connection with green spaces is one of the things that many of us want to take forwards into the future. As we look ahead to a post-lockdown world, I’m sure that you are thinking about the changes you want to keep.
As people talk about building back from this pandemic, a phrase that you’ve probably heard is ‘Green Recovery’, and over the summer this will be a key focus of our campaign. Together we’ll be calling for a cleaner, greener future to be at the heart of plans to rebuild a strong economy after Coronavirus. Watch this space for ways to get involved.
In the meantime, here are three things you can do:
1. Read our Jargon Buster
If you want to know more about green recovery – and any other phrases related to climate action you might have heard recently – we’ve created a Jargon Buster to help you explain to your friends and family what this all means.
2. Share our vision of a brighter, greener future
This week on social media we have shared a series of illustrations showing our vision for a brighter, greener future where we have built back better. We want these images to be seen far and wide, so please download them, and share widely to show your friends and family what a green recovery can look like.
3. Donate to support us
Even during the current health crisis, we are seeing the impacts of climate change at home and abroad. Because of this we are more committed than ever to building a cleaner, greener future by asking our leaders to take the ambitious actions needed for urgent change. We can’t do this without the support of our donors.
As you look ahead to the changes you want to keep and make in the future, why not add a monthly donation to The Climate Coalition. Just £5 a month can help us to bring together people from all walks of life to call for a recovery that puts climate, nature and people at its heart.
Thank you for your support,
Beth and The Climate Coalition team
