WHAT IS THE UK
YEAR OF CLIMATE
In light of the current situation with Covid-19 and the postponement of COP26 to 2021, we are reviewing our plans for the Year of Climate Action.
We are sensitive to the pressures facing businesses, communities and other organisations at this time, and the need to be mindful of these when shaping our plans.
Tackling climate change is a key priority for the UK and our commitment to engaging individuals, communities and businesses to drive climate action remains.
This is a critical year for the future of our planet. We have an opportunity to make changes to stop the activities which are polluting our land, water and skies; impacting people’s lives, and making parts of our planet uninhabitable.
By working together, we have an opportunity to build a cleaner, greener, brighter future for our children, grandchildren, wildlife and our planet.
This year, we’ve launched a Year of Climate Action to inspire positive action and engagement on climate change across the UK in the run up to the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26).
We are working across government, and with businesses, organisations, civil society groups, creative and cultural institutions and young people to encourage action to tackle climate change. This work will include building partnerships, organising events, campaigns and activities that will have a positive impact on climate change. Keep an eye on these pages for more information on how to get involved.
