The Time is Now – tell Members of Parliament on 26th June what they must do.“The Time is Now mass lobby is being organised by The Climate Coalition and Greener UK, two coalitions of organisations that represent millions of people across the UK. From surfers to scientists, bird watchers to doctors, everyone has a stake in the state of our environment.”

Individuals are urged to write to their MPs (template here.) The wording is: Dear [x MP]
I am writing to you as one of your constituents to invite you to attend the UK’s biggest mass lobby for climate, nature and people ‘The Time Is Now’ on 26th June at 1pm. I’d like to talk to you about climate change and the environment and ask you to take strong action. I’m particularly concerned about [insert what you care about].
People across the globe are suffering from the effects of climate change and our wildlife populations are being wiped out. The time is now to end the UK’s contribution to climate change and pass ambitious laws that create a healthier environment for nature and people. These actions need to be taken now, before it is too late. We simply don’t have time to waste.
On 26th June I will be joined by other constituents from my local area todiscuss this with you. Thousands of people from all over the country will be attending and we really hope you can join us.
WHAT: The Time Is Now mass lobby for climate, nature and people
WHEN: 1pm-4pm, June 26th
WHERE: The lobby will be made up of thousands of people meeting MPs outside parliament. You will be met outside and taken to your constituents.
Please let me know as soon as possible if you can attend. I look forward to hearing from you and I hope to see you there.
Yours sincerely,
[your name]
[your postcode]

This will be a major demonstration and will flush out the MPs who want to avert or perpetuate climate breakdown and ecological disasters.

Please remind them that the UK should attend the UN Climate Summit in New York on 23rd Sept with MUCH more ambitious pledges, showing real leadership in view of the Climate Emergency declared by Parliament on 1st May 2019.
