We’ve seen a consistent series of climate disasters in the news, we’ve felt it in the weather, we may have read it in recent reports – it’s not surprising if we’re feeling overwhelmed at the state of the world. What can we do to have a positive impact? What does ‘Net Zero’ and ‘COP26’ really mean for us?

We’ve pulled together 12 clear actions you can take that'll have a positive impact - individually and collectively through engaging your community, your workplace and your MP.
