Saturday’s family friendly demo will call on politicians to do more to protect the environment.

The natural world is in trouble and we need to take action. Show your support for the natural world by joining the Restore Nature Now Rally in central London, starting at noon on Saturday 22nd June.

This demonstration will bring a wide range of groups together to celebrate British nature and call on politicians to take urgent action on the environment and climate change. We want to see UK politicians show strong domestic and global nature and climate leadership by:

  1. Giving a pay-rise for nature
    2. Making polluters pay
    3. Delivering more space for nature
    4. Putting a right to a healthy environment in law
    5. Ensuring fair and effective climate action

All species are at risk…Our rivers and sea are being poisoned by horrifying amounts of pollution, wildlife numbers continue to decline with 1 in 6 British species at risk of extinction, and floods and droughts are becoming more extreme as we see the escalating effects of the climate emergency.  Yet the UK Government’s own advisers say we are not on track to meet legal targets to restore nature and reduce climate emissions

It’s time to take action…That’s why a wide-range of groups, from leading nature charities like the RSPB to environmental activists like Extinction Rebellion, are urging everyone who cares for nature to march through London on Saturday 22 June, with a simple demand to all political parties: Restore Nature Now.

You can make a difference. This legal, peaceful, inclusive and family-friendly demonstration aims to be the biggest gathering of people for nature and climate that the UK has ever seen. It is both a celebration of British nature and a protest calling for urgent political action on the nature and climate emergencies.

There will be family friendly performance art, sculptures, singing and more for added entertainment for our marchers. The march will be wheelchair accessible and BSL interpreted. The culmination of the march will see a central ‘rally’ in Parliament Square at around 2.30pm. This will see well-known names and faces speaking to marchers about the political and policy changes we need to see to finally turn the tide for the environment and Restore Nature Now.

Organised by:  RSPB, The Wildlife Trusts, Friends of the Earth, The Climate Coalition, WWF-UK, National Trust, Woodland Trust, WWT, Wildlife and Countryside Link, Rewilding Britain, and Extinction Rebellion. Supported by over 100 other organisations including the CPRE London, National Federation of Parks and Green Spaces, The Conservation Volunteers, CND, Greenpeace, Hunt Saboteurs Association, Just Stop Oil, Surfers Against Sewage, Pesticides Action Network, Soil Association, Sustain, Trees For Cities
