There are plenty of ways to get involved with Our Bright Future. Many of the projects operate at a local level, although some are available nationwide. Do get in touch with the team if you are interested in a specific project and we can put you in touch with the relevant project leader.
Here are the current advertised opportunities:
#TheTimeIsNow Mass Lobby
On 26 June thousands will gather at Westminster in central London, to call on our politicians to set the foundations for a brighter, greener and safer world. People across the globe are suffering from the effects of climate change and our wildlife populations are being wiped out. The time is now for MPs to end the UK’s contribution to climate change and pass ambitious laws for nature’s recovery on land and sea. We simply don’t have time to waste. Join Our Bright Future and many others to show our politicians the way to a #WilderFuture.
