The Climate Coalition – The Show the Love Campaign

Sue Bentley MBE, Cheshire Federation’s Climate Ambassador went to London on Wednesday 13th February to  Meeting Room T, Portcullis House from 11.15am-1pm and then to Room C, 1 Parliament Street from 3-5pm to lobby MPs about supporting zero emissions by 2050 as part of her Climate Ambassador role.  More than 50 MPs came to talk to all  representatives, including those from other organisations including the WWF, the RSPB and the National Trust.  All the MPs were given a green heart and some climate change information.   Sue explains that ‘The Show The Love green heart drop in gives an opportunity for MPs to speak to local people about the impacts of climate change in their local areas and why we feel passionately about this.  The idea was for as many MPs as possible to be presented with green hearts and to have their photo taken during the day and for those from the morning session to wear their green heart badge during PMQs which started at 12pm.’  The photo is of Sue with her local MP Derek Twigg and she tells us ‘you can’t see how much my legs ache on the photo but they REALLY did!  Despite this she had a brilliant day which went very well!’  To find out more about our previous  activities please click here.
