In June government representatives from the world over will gather in a Summit at Rio to discuss how to develop a more sustainable and greener, fairer global economy. CAFOD are currently running a campaign which urges the UK government to remain committed to delivering a green and fair economy and to also make sure practical actions are agreed at the Summit.
There are a number of ways which you could help us in this campaign:
You could write to your MP by 22 June asking them to sign the Rio Declaration which focuses on the green economy, climate change and tackling poverty. The more MPs we have sign the Declaration the greater chance we have in ensuring the UK supports a global green and fair economy.
There will also be local events which are being organised across the UK in the run up to the Summit. This is a perfect opportunity for you to get involved with the local community and also talk to your MP about these issues.
You can find out more information on our website Cafod.org.uk/rio
Here you will find out more information on the Summit, what’s happening in your local area and also short videos and literature explaining more about the Summit and why it is important.
Please get involved in any way you can!
