You might have noticed there’s been a lot of talk about how the Green Economy is working recently.
Maybe you heard that more than 250 people gathered outside the Treasury in October to tell the government that Green is Working… If you’re on Twitter, you might have seen thousands of Tweets about how the green economy is a success story using the hashtag #greenisworking… and if you live in London you may have noticed adverts on Tube platforms telling David Cameron to take the Green Economy seriously.
There’s been a lot going on, and this is all because we want to highlight that whilst the UK economy struggled last year, green business was one of the only sectors that grew.

We want to make sure politicians hear this message because the government has two key opportunities to make the Climate Act work this Autumn. See what we’re calling for here: http://stopclimatechaos.org/giw-asks
And there are lots of ways you can help us do that, either as an individual or with others near you:
1) Send an e-mail to your MP.
2) Upload a photo of you, or a group of you with a message about how green is working for you or your area.
3) Visit your MP to ask for their support for the Climate Act – and the green economy.
