We're excited to launch our UK Parliament petition calling on the UK government to "Prevent all new North Sea oil and gas exploration". See here to read all about it - please sign and share widely!
Here's a round-up of more ongoing climate-related activities, initiatives and ideas for actions for 2023:
- Sign up here for the Norwich hub of Green New Deal UK (GND-UK) who are actively looking at what a Green New Deal would look like in Norwich and seeking to work with partners to develop and promote the campaign. See here to provide information on the type of activity you would like to be involved in. One of the core elements of the campaign is creating more secure jobs, and there are specific actions that GDN-UK are taking under the banner of Green Jobs for All. The campaign is also working on creating a food strategy for Norwich, identifying gaps and barriers to a just food system.
