The UK branch of Protect Our Winters (POW), the global movement of skiers and boarders to fight climate change, is urging skiers and boarders to join a virtual lobby, aimed at asking British MPs to take action for a better future.
The virtual lobby is being organised by a group called The Climate Coalition, a group of over 100 member organisations including POW.
“We are at a turning point. As we build back from the current health crisis, we can choose to tackle climate change and nature’s decline, and rebuild a resilient economy that benefits everyone in society. Or we can let the moment for change pass us by, go back to old ways and wait for new crises to hit,” a POW UK Statement reads, continuing, “We need to tell politicians that #TheTimeIsNow to put a healthy, greener, fairer future at the heart of plans to rebuild a strong economy.”
Participants then need to email their MP to ask them to provide a videocall link so POW say it’s important participants try to sign up and send the request asap this week.
