Green hearts

Green hearts are powerful. When you make and share your green heart, you help send a powerful message to decision-makers: that people from every corner of the UK want to see urgent action to protect the people, places and life we love from the worst impacts of climate change. Green hearts bring people together. When you make and display your green heart, you show others in your community that you care about climate change and are hopeful that we can protect what we love from its impacts by taking urgent action. Every February, green hearts pop up across the country as everyone from Prime Ministers to Premier League footballers, astronauts to the Archbishop of Canterbury join the UK’s biggest conversation about climate change. Show the Love may look a little different this year, but there are still many ways to get involved.
