Report from Mary Lindsey, Climate Ambassador and member of Truro WI
On 26th June, over 12,000 people gathered in Westminster to tell their MPs in person that the ‘Time is Now’ to act on the climate and nature crisis. We simply don’t have time to wait because our world is under threat like never before.
WIs from all over the UK were represented, including some from Cornwall. Their members met with their MPs on the day to press for urgent action to end the UK’s contribution to climate change and to pass ambitious laws to create a healthier environment for people and nature.
The lobbyists from Truro were on Lambeth bridge with members of the Wildlife Trust, National Trust and RSPB and, at 2pm, all 12,000 lobbyists set off alarms to send a message to Westminster that they need to wake up and respond to the challenges our beautiful world is facing. We all need to wake up to this because The Time is Now to change what is otherwise inevitable.
