Our guide to building a greener, fairer future post Covid-19.

Ensuring a just recovery from coronavirus

We’ve rightly been focusing on looking after ourselves and one another during Covid-19. 

Now we’re thinking about how to ensure we emerge from this crisis into a more just, equal and climate-friendly society. We're calling for this fairer, greener society alongside other organisations and movements including Build Back Better and the Climate Coalition

At the same time, we're working on our own campaign for a just recovery. We want to build this with as much input from the grassroots as possible, so we're really keen to hear your thoughts. 

We hope you can join our training on campaigning for a green and just recovery plan in the UK (22 June 5-6pm and 24 June 7:30-8pm). Building on some of your input from the discussions last month, we'll cover the principles of a green and just recovery, how to lobby your MP to demand it, and how to bring your community along with you. Register to attend.

Lobbying activity

Our advice on lobbying decision makers is changing. We still need to allow councils and MPs the space to respond to the pandemic and support our communities.

But where issues are urgent or of particular importance at this time, such as active travel or where councils' recovery plans are emerging, there is a real opportunity to help create some positive changes in your community.
