In December, we will deliver a 3-metre Christmas card to No 10 with the message below, signed by people across the UK. To add your name, please sign the e-petition below by Monday 29 November.
Dear Prime Minister,
Christmas is a time of hope. Our hope is that climate catastrophe is averted for the poorest and most climate-vulnerable countries, and that the pledges made at COP26 are fulfilled.
At the start of COP26 you acknowledged the responsibility of richer countries to support those suffering the worst effects of the climate crisis. After COP26, you said there is now ‘a clear roadmap to limiting the rise in global temperatures to 1.5 degrees’.
But the proof is in the pudding. During the remaining UK COP presidency in 2022, we call on you to:
- Ensure countries deliver stronger national plans to keep 1.5°C alive.
- Secure more ambitious climate finance commitments.
- Press for finance for climate-related loss and damage.
- Lead on drawing the fossil fuel era to a close and a just transition to renewable energy.
Only then will COP26 be deemed to have put the brakes on climate change.
We wish you a peaceful Christmas.
This card is being created in collaboration with charity Christian Aid. Your name and town/city will be shared for the purpose of creating the giant card, but your data will not be used or stored by Christian Aid for any other purpose.
