Hi there,

Thanks for your email, I’ll get back to you on that as soon as possible.

In the meantime, I’d like to take this opportunity to let you know that I’m supporting the Global Climate Strike on Friday 20 September and invite you to join me.

The climate crisis demands urgent action. For the past year, young people around the world have been leading the climate strikes to demand that our leaders make it their number one priority. With 200 species going extinct every day and water scarcity affecting up to 360 million people, there’s no time to lose. You can find out more about their demands.

I’m concerned about our future, and that’s why I’m backing the Global Climate Strike this Friday. Hopefully you will too – find a strike near you at https://ukscn.org/r2/events/ooo.
