Join others from the West Midlands at the Time is Now Mass Lobby

Event details

date:

As people of faith, we have been entrusted to care for God's creation. And sometimes that means raising our voice to ensure decisions makers protect the air we breathe and the earth we live on. The world's poorest people have done least to create climate change, yet are already suffering from the worst impacts of it. So we continue to demand climate justice. On Wednesday 26 June we’ll come together with over 100 like-minded organisations – members of The Climate Coalition – to speak to our politicians and make our voices heard. We hope you can join us, so that every West Midlands MP hears from at least a couple of their constituents at this important event. Timings 9.30am - 11.30am: Workshops at St Martin in the Fields, Trafalgar Square. 11.30am Whitehall Walk of Witness 12pm - 1.15pm: Interfaith speaker event (including Rowan Williams) at Church House, Westminster 1pm - 4pm: Mass lobby of Parliament From 1pm together we’ll lobby our MPs, call for urgent action on climate change and ask them to support a new legally binding target to reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2045 and to put that into action NOW.
