Life on Earth is in crisis. Our climate is changing faster than scientists predicted and the stakes are high. Biodiversity loss. Crop failure. Social and ecological collapse. Mass extinction. We are running out of time, and our Government has failed to act.

We have a moral duty to rebel—whatever our politics.

Our Demands

  1. Tell the Truth

    Government must tell the truth by declaring a climate and ecological emergency, working with other institutions to communicate the urgency for change.

  2. Act Now

    Government must act now to halt biodiversity loss and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero.

  3. Beyond Politics

    Government must create and be led by the decisions of a Citizens’ Assembly on climate and ecological justice.
