Movements on Climate Change

Does declaring a Climate Emergency go far enough?

NO, But Rosemary Neave thinks it does not mean we should slag off those who are moving in the right direction.

Change is up to all of us…

Government – activists – individuals all have a part to play

The recent question of whether a Climate Emergency Declaration is simply symbolic got Rosemary Neave thinking about how change happens, and the degree to which ‘government’ at all levels is dependent on the interplay that both activists and individual voters play in this.
