[Example text]

We are in a Climate Emergency, with climate change impacts already killing people and destroying ecosystems. The 900+ local councils globally that have declared a Climate Emergency and are developing climate emergency action plans for their community are providing the first ray of hope in an otherwise frightening time.

One council might feel they can't save the planet alone, but many councils all working to restore a safe climate can achieve a lot.

Please sign our petition asking the [council name] to declare a Climate Emergency and take all the actions they can to protect our future.
