Petition Protect the Environment – support carbon neutral energy alternatives

In November 2019, Members of the UK Youth Parliament, sitting in the House of Commons voted “Protect the Environment” as its campaigning priority for this year.

We are calling for the Government to ban fracking, end the mining of fossil fuels and instead support carbon neutral energy alternatives.

More details

To preserve this world for the next generation, we have a moral responsibility to protect it from the effects of Climate Change. Climate change is a problem than will affect young people more than any other generation.

Right now, the Government are not protecting the environment in the way that is necessary for young people and the next generation.
