Better Buses for Greater Manchester march from Stagecoach to hand in their 11,000 strong petition to Andy Burnham
As the year ends many of us will be thinking about new year resolutions. Friends of the Earth wants everyone, especially those in power, to make 2020 the year we save the planet from catastrophic climate breakdown. It can be small, individual actions, or making the decision to join other people for collective change. Whatever you resolve to do, start the new decade feeling positive that we can all make a difference.

From rewilding to agroforestry, campaigners Guy Shrubsole and Danny Gross discuss what's needed to achieve systemic change and double tree cover.
