Ask your MP to back a green and fair recovery plan
In early July Chancellor Rishi Sunak is expected to announce a plan to boost the UK economy after the impacts of coronavirus. This could have far-reaching impacts for the climate and nature emergency if he doesn’t get it right.
That’s why we need our calls for a green and fair recovery plan to be heard in the halls of Westminster now.
Instead of locking us into another crisis, we need a genuinely transformative plan from government that safeguards the future prosperity of people and planet. There can be no back to business as usual when that means a return to ever-increasing gaps between rich and poor, huge health inequalities and the destruction of the natural world.
This is the first time the Chancellor is expected to make such an announcement, and though it won’t be the last, we need to take this chance to create a strong base to build our campaign for a green and fair recovery. Every opportunity matters in the fight for people and planet.
Will you let your MP know we want a plan from the government to:
- Prioritise health and wellbeing
- Put green jobs and livelihoods at the heart of the recovery
- Fix the broken economy
- Cooperate globally and act responsibly
- Empower communities to lead the recovery
