It’s time to act for climate and nature!
Zero Hour is the campaign group behind the Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill, or ‘CEE Bill’. The CEE Bill was first developed with members of the successful ‘Big Ask’ campaign (a Friends of the Earth initiative which led to the Climate Change Act 2008), Power for People and with contributions from eminent scientists, academics and lawyers. The campaign for the CEE Bill launched in August 2020, with its introduction to Parliament in September 2020. The updated CEE Bill was introduced in Parliament in June 2021.
The CEE Bill has received backing from a wide range of supporters, including Froglife, and from different fields including Ben Fogle, Kumi Naidoo (Director, Greenpeace International, 2009-16); musician, Thom Yorke; environmentalist, Bill McKibben; Volans co-founder, John Elkington and actor-playwright Sir Mark Rylance. For a full list of supporters, you can head to Zero Hour’s Allies and Supporters page.
What can you do?
Time is running out for climate and nature and we need to get the Climate and Ecological Emergency bill through in a fraction of that time, so it’s time for MPs, councils, organisations and individuals to step up! The more support, the more pressure there will be on the government to take the Bill into law. And for that to happen we need as many campaigners, both as individuals and organisations to declare their support for the CEE Bill.
