Climate Crisis

JOIN MOTHERS RISE UP IN THE FIGHT AGAINST CLIMATE CRISIS

Are you looking for ways to get involved with the fight for action on climate crisis?

Do your thoughts drift from one anxiety to another as we watch the Amazon burn and the Polar Ice melt? Are you concerned about your little one’s future and furious with governments for doing little to tackle the biggest issue facing our species? It can be difficult to know what to do but as young people rise up around the world, should it really just be left to them to speak truth to power? Mothers Rise Up was born from connections made at the Extinction Rebellion protests and inspired by Youth Climate Strikes. They demand that the UK government commits to reducing carbon emissions to net zero by 2030 or sooner and makes a just transition to a sustainable way of life.

If this sounds like the sort of movement you would like to get behind, there are ways to get involved and children are always welcome.

Join the Global Climate Strike

Friday, 20th September 2019

Young people have been skipping school and striking for climate action for months.

Now they are asking adults to come out and strike in solidarity with them ahead of a UN Climate Summit in New York on 23rd September where world leaders will gather to discuss the crisis. Hundreds of thousands of people are expected to strike and rally for urgent climate action across the globe. If you can please join the strike – even just for an hour to show your support. Look out for Mother’s Rise Up Banners, giant globe and flags to join in with other mums.

Part of the global movement ‘Our Kids Climate’, they will be joined by similar activist parent and grandparent groups from around the world.

What Will Protesting Do Anyways?

Protesting is about coming together and supporting each other. Taking action can be very therapeutic and can, as we’ve witnessed from Greta Thunberg, lead to change. Politicians are aware that the climate crisis is one of the issues voters are most concerned about. Demonstrating draws all the attention away from them and on to the causes we care about. Plus it can also be seriously good fun! You’ll meet mums who are exhausted, mums who are late for school, mums who go out to work and mums who stay at home. Mums from diverse backgrounds, faiths and ethnicities. Some have been worrying about climate change for years; some are just now waking up to the crisis. In short, you’ll meet mothers like you who are concerned about the future for our little ones and willing the world to do more to fight our climate crisis.

If any mums would like to go together from Tower Hamlets. Please get in touch
