Weā€™re doing our bit on climate change. It's time to make our political leaders do theirs. This election join a Walk near you and help us convince our political leaders to: Walk with the people. Not the Big Polluters.

While our political leaders have been squabbling, the rest of us have been getting on with the business of dealing with climate change.

We're going green and clean. We're reducing our greenhouse pollution and recycling our waste. We're saving water and energy, and buying greenpower. And we're forming climate action groups - all across the country.
