65% of young people feel that the UK government is failing them on climate. 2023 was the hottest year on record and 2024 looks set to breach the 1.5-degree temperature limit. We need to act now to turn the tide on the climate crisis and show our young people that a sustainable future is achievable.

    Situation

    The UN predicts that even if countries fulfil all the current pledges to reduce emissions, there will still be an 11% increase in global emissions by 2030. Over the last year, the UK has experienced drought, widespread flooding and frequent storms. This has been mirrored across the globe where extreme weather events are becoming the norm. As the devastating effects of the climate crisis become more frequent and widely felt, is it any wonder that 72% of young people find the future frightening?

    Solution

    Here in Cumbria, we are working to reduce carbon emissions as quickly as possible. We have made good progress in many areas, but we need your help to increase our impact and take significant action to tackle the root causes of climate change. We know that our young people need us to be bold. We must act on their concerns and bring about the change they want to see. Through stepping up our work, we can make a happier and safer future possible. Join us in the fight for our future.
