Climate emergency The solutions

How do we stop the climate emergency from becoming a full-blown disaster?

Our experts have come up with a plan – focusing on 6 areas of society. But the clock is ticking.

In a matter of years, dangerous levels of global warming will lead to more extreme weather, poverty, suffering and loss of life.

We urgently need to stop emitting more climate pollution than the world's plants and trees can absorb. This is our plan to make that happen...

Our Climate Action Plan:

What the government needs to do:

Stop the sale of petrol and diesel cars by 2030. Invest in brilliant and cheap public transport, cycling and walking everywhere.

What you can do:

Take fewer long-haul flights – and use the train instead of the plane for shorter journeys.

What the government needs to do:

Stop generating electricity from dirty fuels and ban fracking. Aim for 100% clean energy from the wind, sun and sea.

What you can do:

Keep your heating below 18°C and switch to renewable energy.

What the government needs to do:

End the misery of cold, expensive-to-heat homes. Fund a massive insulation scheme and shift to eco-friendly heating.

What you can do:

Install roof insulation (or ask your landlord to).

Get the government to adopt our plan

Take action

What the government needs to do:

Stop backing projects that fuel climate change, like airport expansion. Start making climate change a deal-breaker in all spending decisions.

What you can do:

Ask the government to adopt our Climate Action Plan.

What the government needs to do:

Stop funding fossil fuels. Pay its fair share to support more-vulnerable countries to cut carbon pollution and deal with the impacts of climate change.

What you can do:

Help stop our plastic waste polluting other countries by calling for a new law.
