Wednesday 26 June saw people gathering outside Parliament for the Climate Coalition’s ‘The Time is Now’ Mass Lobby. I was very glad to be able to meet with constituents from Durham who had travelled to London to discuss what we can do to address the climate emergency we are facing, including reducing our plastic waste.
Climate change is one of the biggest challenges faced by the world to date, and if left unchecked, we all face the consequences. I believe Parliament must be at the forefront of tacking climate change through innovative and sustainable policies that seek to end our dependence on fossil fuels and protect biodiversity. I will continue to do everything I can to ensure that Parliament upholds it commitments to tackling climate change and that our future is sustainable.
