Event Description

Drought and famine fuelled by climate change is causing a humanitarian disaster in east Africa, yet Trump's administration refutes climate change and May's actively undermines carbon reduction. 

In the US, Trump is slashing funding for climate science and preparing to force through disastrous projects such as the Keystone XL and Dakota Access Pipelines.

 

In the UK, May's government are continuing a programme of climate action cut-backs, while pushing through damaging infrastructure such as fracking and a third runway at Heathrow.

Rise up! 

On 22 April, join us on the climate bloc at the March for Science - London, part of a global movement of scientists pushing back against the rejection of evidence in favour of 'alternative facts'. Join on Facebook and find out more.

On 29 April, as the People's Climate March takes place in the US, we're taking a message of solidarity to Westminster Bridge and rallying for UK campaigners to rise up for climate action! Join on Facebook and find out more below

Next planning meeting for these events - 16 April, 6.30pm, Institute of Education (Facebook event)

In the US, the first 100 days of Trump's presidency - disastrous for the climate, the people of the US and those of the world - will be marked by a massive climate march in Washington DC. In London, we'll be showing our solidarity in London in a creative climate change action on Westminster Bridge at 1pm. Before that, at 12pm, we'll be hearing from speakers who'll highlight practical actions we can take to stop the UK from following Trump down a path of climate disaster!
