Over the past few weeks we have been receiving all of your fantastic messages for world leaders which we will be sharing at COP26 on November 1st. It has been wonderful to see so many voices coming together to stand up for our planet, and we are delighted to be able to share your messages at COP26 and make your voices heard. Together we are powerful and we can make a difference. It is vital that the decision-makers who are supposed to represent us can hear us and know what we expect from them.
There has been far too much talking and far too little action in the fight against climate change, and time is quickly running out. We must take action on a large scale, but for this to happen, it is essential that world leader’s make the right decisions now. If we do not act soon, then we are risking entire ecosystem collapse and the destruction of our beautiful planet.
It may sound dramatic, but this is the real risk that humanity is currently facing. However, it is not too late to stop this from happening. COP26 is the final opportunity for world leaders to get it right, and we must do all we can to push them in the right direction. To all those who have sent us their messages for world leaders – thank you! We have received messages from people all over the UK and internationally, and it is wonderful to see so many people fighting for our planet. If you haven’t yet sent us your message for world leaders, please do send them to us here and let us make your voice heard!
These are just a few of the brilliant messages you have been sending in over the past few weeks!
“Life is breathtakingly beautiful and full of amazement: the change of a tadpole to the tiniest frog is something which brings delight, wonder and joy. Let’s think not just of ourselves but of generations ahead of us, seven generations on. How will they think of us? Will they bless us, this generation on the cusp of either devastation or renewal? Or will they curse us?” Mary, Leeds
“Please restrict the power of big corporations, oil companies, industries. We need more, bold, effective regulations to steer our climate towards a less destructive direction. We all depend on your bravery, expertise, and experience. As a citizen I can just vote, vote with my wallet, and write messages. As leaders, you can do so much more. Please act before it’s too late.” Anna, Germany
“Money, power and politics mean nothing on an Earth that can’t sustain life… please remember that your decisions today will impact the lives of every being on this planet…” Charlotte, Planet Earth
“Please remember that our amphibians and reptiles will also be affected by our changing climate, in particular how their habitats and food are affected by the changes that come from more extreme weather and unpredictable elements. Ensuring our wildlife, including reptiles and amphibians, survive our changing climate is important because with them our ecosystems are healthier and will function better, and our lives (and generations to come) will be much richer for having them here.” Ed, Forest of Dean
“Do you want to look back on your time in office, and be remembered for doing all you could to save the planet, or do you want to be remembered for inaction and failure?” William, UK
