What we're about

Citizens' Climate Lobby (https://citizensclimatelobby.uk) is an international organisation dedicated to creating the political will to enact effective climate change solutions. We do this primarily by lobbying our elected representatives to enact CCL's Carbon Fee & Dividend (https://citizensclimatelobby.uk/carbon-fee-dividend/) climate policy.

Governments have often set emissions targets without adopting a workable mechanism to achieve them. The most effective way to reduce emissions is to levy a tax on fossil fuel companies as fuel enters the economy, and return every penny directly to households. Lower income groups benefit - an estimated 60% of people would get back more in dividend than they pay out in tax. By being politically sustainable in this way, investment into low carbon products and services is incentivised.

If you're concerned about climate change and would like to make a difference, we'd love to hear from you. You don't need any particular skills or experience as we will provide training, but whatever you have to offer would be most welcome and will be put to good use by us.

The London branch of Citizens' Climate Lobby is a new group, but internationally CCL has been around since 2007, has over 400 active groups around the world and on every continent (except Antarctica).

ACTION POINTS FOR THIS GROUP:

• Where eligible, please add your name to these petitions asking both the UK Government (https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/260283) and the European Union (https://eci.ec.europa.eu/007/public/#/initiative) to introduce Carbon Fee & Dividend. UK residents who sign the EU petition before we leave the EU will be counted towards the target total.

• Encourage your friends to do the same.

• Make sure your MP is well-informed - we can help you with this.
