Save our countryside
On 8 January 2021, the UK government temporarily authorised the use of a bee-harming neonicotinoid pesticide.
Neonicotinoids can contaminate the soil, waterways and wildflowers, threatening our bees and other wildlife.
The department for the environment (Defra) is drawing up a new Pesticides Action Plan. If enough of us speak up, we could help reduce the use of pesticides in our countryside.
Is your council funding fossil fuels?
New data from Friends of the Earth and Platform has revealed that local councils across the UK are investing almost £10 billion of their pension funds into companies drilling for new coal, gas and oil – making climate breakdown worse.
Halting the extraction and expansion of fossil fuels is a matter of survival for us all.
There are several ways we can pressure our local leaders to act now and re-invest pension funds to support both people and planet.
