Growing our Future: Be BOLD Petition

 

The Be BOLD Petition is now closed

People across the world, especially in poorer countries, are feeling the effects of climate change. As temperatures rise, so do the risks to health, livelihoods, food security, access to water and economic growth.

We brought the Be BOLD Petition to 10 Downing Street to urge the Prime Minister to take immediate action for our planet. We received over 1,300 signatures.

See the open letter to Prime Minister Boris Johnson below.


Dear Prime Minister,

Pope Francis has spoken of the “urgent need for politics and economics to enter into a frank dialogue in the service of life, especially human life.”

COP26 needs strong leadership to limit the annual global temperature rising above 1.5°C. In taking action, you will protect people, especially the poorest , from its devastating effects. We urge you to:

-Lead global action on reducing carbon emissions to ensure all countries commit to taking the action needed to limit global warming

-Stop funding the fossil fuel industry. No subsidies. No new oil and gas ventures

-Work with world leaders to meet your commitment in providing countries on the frontline of the climate crisis with $100 billion each year in climate finance

Be bold, Boris!
