Read below about Kate Osborne MPs latest campaign:
The Jarrow MP has this week launched the ‘Crusade against Climate Change’ campaign which aims to ‘work towards a greener, more sustainable future’ by working with the ‘next generation’ across her South Tyneside and Gateshead constituency.
The launch of the campaign comes in the same week as the release of the UN IPCC report in which the authors say that a rise in sea levels approaching 2m by the end of this century “cannot be ruled out”.
Talking about the campaign, Kate Osborne MP said:
“I’m launching this campaign as Climate Change is without a doubt the greatest threat to humanity across the globe. The UN have said we are now at a crucial point and have given a ‘code red for humanity’. There is no time for delay and action is needed now to prevent a climate catastrophe”.
“This is the right time to work with the next generation to see how we can work towards a greener, more sustainable future across our local communities”.
“The campaign will involve local people and communities and encourage them to play their part in combatting climate change”.
“I will be contacting local schools to gather ideas from pupils and to see what changes they plan to make in order to improve the local environment”.
“I want to encourage young people to speak out and contact my office with their ideas on what needs to be done to improve our environment.”
“I will be taking some of these emails and letters down to Westminster with me and will be presenting them to the Prime Minister, so if you are a young person passionate about this extremely important issue, please get in touch with my office.”
