Feeling like you’re part of a community is motivating, and it makes  you feel like you’re part of something bigger, which makes you happy – that’s psychology, or something.

Sign up to our newsletter, discover what other activists are getting up, and join a community of people who are saving the world.

Write to your MP

Decisions are made by the people who show up. Don’t just get angry that the government isn’t acting on climate change, make them. If everyone wrote their MP, we’d very quickly see radical change. Because unlike signing a petition, MPs have to respond to the people who write them letters. They have to pay attention to you.

Writing to your MP is the first step to achieving change.

Go to an Action

Going along to support an action is the best way of seeing how comfortable you are with the process. You’ll find it exciting and unnerving. And you never know, it might just change your life.

We have a news page that shows what we’re getting up to, and we might feature some other groups in our newsletter. But if you want to dip your toe into direct action, google some issues, or some groups you’re interested in,
and go along.

Setup your own Action

Few things are as satisfying as dreaming up your own ideas, and implementing them. You might not achieve your stated goals straight away, but you will almost certainly inspire others to do join the fight. And that is when change happens.

If you’re thinking about starting an action, we’ve put together a checklist to help you.

Get Arrested

Not everyone wants to get arrested, which is fine. However, nothing weds you to a cause more! Spending time in a cell after standing up for your beliefs is life-changing. You’ll walk away from that police station feeling alive in a way that you’ve never felt before. If prison cells were brimful with people demanding action, politicians would have to act to avoid insurrection.

Seek legal advice ahead of your action. There has been a clamp down on our right to protest. Speak to a lawyer like Bindmans or a human rights organisation like Liberty.

Start a Regional Group

The more people who get involved in direct action, the faster government acts. The more people we have in this fight, the quicker we win!

Already the Climate Rush ‘brand’ has been used in protests in Bristol, Cambridge and Hitchen. So if there’s an injustice out there that’s getting you down, get in touch and do something about it!
