Ask your MLAs to vote for the Climate Change Bill

Our climate is changing at an alarming rate with air pollution, extreme weather and rising sea levels threatening life as we know it. Yet Northern Ireland remains the only part of the UK without its own climate law. As part of our Revive Our World campaign, we want to change this.  

Take action today by emailing your local MLAs and ask them to vote in favour of the Climate Change Bill. Click the link below to get started 

Our Policy Work

RSPB Northern Ireland works across a diverse range of policy areas and employs a team of dedicated staff to understand the threats facing our wildlife and habitats.

Priority policy areas include:

  • ensuring our protected areas on land and sea are managed effectively, moving towards creating a low carbon economy

  • influencing agriculture policy to help halt biodiversity declines in the wider countryside

  • helping to encourage a greater connection to nature for our children through education policy.  

    We work with policymakers from across the political spectrum to convince them of the importance of protecting and enhancing nature now and for future generations.

    We also work with those who have the capacity to bring about positive change to deliver the best environmental outcomes for wildlife, local communities and the economy.
