The Global Day of Action against Climate Change has long been a set date in the calendar for seasoned climate activists. This year, however, with the first UK Youth Delegation to the UN talks in Poland, young people are stepping up their activity. Friday witnessed the launch of Our Time Is Now, a resource for young people across the UK to join a generational movement on December 6th – to say that our generation is ready;
Ready for a clean energy economy: An economy that’s based on reliable, renewable energy rather than Victorian technologies like coal.
Ready for 21st century transport: A modern public transport system that gets us from A to B without the hidden financial and environmental costs of flying.
Ready for green jobs now: Secure and well-paying green jobs that can never be sent abroad, turning the UK into a world leader in clean technologies.
The choices our leaders are making now will have impacts that will outlast their careers, but will shape our future. We invite you to be part of an exciting, positive and important movement of young people who have the guts to overcome the failed assumptions of the last century.
We are ready for change. Are you?
Our time is now.
