The decisions the government makes this Autumn about public spending will echo through generations. Our children and grandchildren should live in a world with clean air, beautiful green spaces and jobs that stand the test of time. Take action today.
WHAT DECISIONS ARE BEING MADE THIS AUTUMN?
This Autumn, the government is doing a Comprehensive Spending Review to make important decisions on what they invest in for the next five years.
These decisions could set us on a path to a healthy, green and fair tomorrow or they could lock in pollution for generations to come. We need the government to show climate ambition by investing in renewable energy, efficient housing and clean transport; protecting green and wild spaces; and implementing a rule that means all public spending must get us further on track to net zero emissions.
It is a year until the UK hosts a major UN Climate Summit - also known as COP26. This is our opportunity to lead the world into a greener future, but first we need to invest in the solutions to climate change at home.
The decisions made in this Spending Review are key opportunity for the UK to lead the world by ensuring our recovery gets us on track to net-zero emissions and limits the rise in the global temperature to 1.5 degrees C
