Parliament unanimously supported the call to declare a climate emergency – making the UK the first country in the world to do so.
Danielle Rowley MP said:
“It’s clear that for our young people and campaigners that demand for change is not business as usual: bold words but bland action, tinkering around the edges.
“They’re explicit that this is about making sure actions are transformational, addressing the systemic drivers of environmental degradation and climate change.
“Labour is committed to doing this.”
“We need a system that works for the people, for the planet, and for the many.”
