Campaigning

We’ve been campaigning for nature since we were formed in 1889 – and we’ll keep on fighting because nature needs us now more than ever. Tackling the nature and climate crisis is the fight that unites us all. Will you play your part?

It's time to act: we're facing a nature and climate crisis

The effects of the nature and climate crisis can already be seen, from the fires in Greece to the melting of the polar ice caps, and flash floods closer to home. If left unchecked, the long term consequences could be catastrophic. We must act now and demand those in power take immediate action to tackle the biggest threat humanity faces.

 

From 31 October to 12 November this year world leaders are gathering for the 26th UN Climate Change conference, known as COP26, in Glasgow. This is our opportunity to demonstrate our love for nature, and also to highlight the role of nature in the fight against climate change. It’s not too late to change the future - that's what our Revive Our World campaign is all about.

 

Together, we can revive our world.

COP26: what is it and why is it important?

COP26 is a climate change conference that will be attended by the leaders of 197 countries from around the world, as well as climate scientists and campaigners. The aim is to assess progress against the emissions targets set as part of the 2015 Paris Agreement and, more importantly, decide what more needs to be done to keep global temperatures within a safe limit.

 

The RSPB's Head of Campaigning, Natasha Yorke-Edgell, explains more about COP26 and why it's such a pivotal moment for the future of our planet.
