Climate change affects all of us – and the people and things we love. On 17 June 2015, you’re invited to parliament for a day of action, solidarity and celebration of all the things we love.   

Join WinACC at the Climate Coalition's lobby. It’s the first chance to talk with our newly-elected MPs after May’s general election and before crucial international climate negotiations in December 2015. We have invited both Steve Brine and George Hollingbery to meet us, and George Hollingbery has already agreed.

The Waste action group aims to promote the ethos of

  • Prevent
  • Reduce
  • Reuse
  • Recycle
  • Recover
  • Dispose
